Man On “Most Wanted Sex Offender” List Surrenders To Police
The Texas Department of Public Safety added an Amarillo man to it's list of "Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders" on Monday.
33-year-old Dustin Ray Smith had been living in the 4800 block of Echo Drive in Amarillo according to the DPS. He was wanted on various charges related to earlier convictions but had disappeared and authorities were unable to locate him. This resulted in Smith being placed on the DPS' "Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders" list on Monday.
He didn't stay on the list long, turning himself in to the Potter County Detention Center yesterday.
In 2012 Smith was convicted of Sexual Assault of a Child in Potter County for an incident involving a 15-year-old girl. He was given 10 years probation for the charge.
He was arrested again in 2014 for Evading Arrest but bonded out. Later that year warrants were issued in Potter County for Bond Surrender, Probation Violation, and Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
