AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas Department of Public Safety says a violent convicted felon on the agency’s 10 Most Wanted sex offender list has been captured in Colorado.
DPS on Wednesday announced the arrest of 54-year-old David Martinez Maldonado of San Antonio at a homeless shelter in Denver.
Investigators say the suspect was wanted for failing to register as a high-risk convicted sex offender. He was caught Friday thanks to a tip.
Records show Martinez Maldonado’s criminal history includes assault, sex assault, family violence, burglary, larceny and providing false information to law enforcement officials.
