Texas DPS increases reward for top 10 fugitive

Texas DPS added Antonio Jaso Aguilar to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive list Friday.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is offering a $7,500 cash reward for information leading to Aguilar’s capture, and all tips are guaranteed to be anonymous. Law enforcement asks citizens not attempt to apprehend Aguilar as he is considered armed and dangerous.

The 28-year-old is wanted for attempt capital murder and parole violation after a Nov. 28 incident where he exchanged gunfire with a DPS Trooper following an attempt traffic standoff in rural northeast Shelby County.

Aguilar, who is 5-10 and weighs approximately 180 pounds, has tattoos on his abdomen, back, chest, both arms, and has a scar on his neck.

With ties to Center and Joaquin in Shelby County, Aguilary’s criminal history includes, according to the DPS, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm by felon, burglary of a habitation, deadly conduct, evading arrest/detention, obstruction or retaliation, manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and driving while intoxicated.
