Man on Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender List Surrenders

A convicted sex offender on the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives list has been arrested in Amarillo.

Dustin Ray Smith of Amarillo was being held Thursday on charges of failure to register as a sex offender, evading arrest and probation violation.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says the 33-year-old Smith on Tuesday surrendered to officers in Amarillo.

Records show Smith in 2012 was convicted of sexual assault of a child in a Potter County incident involving a 15-year-old girl. He was put on 10 years of probation.

Warrants were issued in 2014 for Smith, whose criminal history also includes retaliation and assault.
