Update: **Captured** Reward Offered for Most Wanted Sex Offender

UPDATED STORY:

Roy Lee Bosier, 55, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, is now in custody after being captured on June 23 in Houston. Bosier, a high-risk sex offender, was wanted for parole violation and failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements. The arrest was the result of tip information, and a reward up to $3,000 will be paid.

Working off tip information, the Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Investigations Division, assisted by the Houston Metro Police Department, located and arrested Bosier without incident in north Houston. (His last known address also was in Houston.)

Bosier’s criminal history included a 1979 conviction for the rape of a 17-year-old girl and a 1987 conviction for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. Bosier was paroled from prison in December 2012; and in June 2015, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a warrant for Bosier’s arrest for parole violation. For more information, see his captured bulletin at: www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=330.

So far in 2016, DPS and other agencies have arrested eight Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including five sex offenders and three gang members, and $15,500 in rewards have been paid for tips that resulted in arrests.

To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters must provide information to authorities using one of the five following methods:

 Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).

All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted, and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Sex Offender lists. You can find the current lists – with photos – on the DPS website at http://www.dps.texas.gov/texas10mostwanted/.

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
