AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — A 27-year-old convicted felon on the Texas 10 Most Wanted sex offender list has been captured in Kansas.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Monday announced Billy Don Urango was caught Feb. 26 in Wichita, Kansas. Investigators say Urango was wanted for parole violation and failure to register as a sex offender.

Records show Urango has a 2010 conviction for aggravated sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child-sexual contact in a Grayson County incident with an 11-year-old boy.

DPS says a tipster will be paid $5,000 as a result of the arrest of Urango, who was wanted since mid-2017 after fleeing from Dallas.
