    A tip has led to the arrest of one of the Department of Public Safety's 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders at a home in Central Texas.

    DPS says 55-year-old James Anthony Rubio was captured in Bandera, about 40 miles northwest of San Antonio.

    Rubio was released from prison in April 2012 after serving 20 years for sexual assault. Investigators say Rubio last September cut off his ankle bracelet monitor and fled from the Travis County Residential Center in Del Valle.

    Rubio, who was caught Monday, had outstanding warrants for failure to register as a sex offender, failure to comply with sex offender civil commitment requirements and a federal warrant for sex offense. His criminal history includes aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, rape, attempted rape and making a terroristic threat.
