Most Wanted Texas Sex Offender Captured in Missouri

A man featured on the Texas Department of Public Safety's list of 10 most wanted sex offenders was captured last week in Missouri.

Zachary Aaron Jenkins was arrested in Springfield, Mo. for failing to register as a sex offender, according to a DPS release sent out on Monday. In 2015, Jenkins was convicted of having indecent sexual contact with a 9-year-old girl in Tarrant County, DPS said. 

Jenkins fled within weeks of being sentenced to 10 years of probation. He surrendered to Springfield police and U.S. Marshals after they surrounded a home where he was staying.
