Most wanted sex offender arrested in San Antonio

AUSTIN, Texas —  

Gregg Michael Scott, 52, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, is now in custody after being arrested Tuesday in San Antonio by the U.S. Marshals Service Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. Scott was wanted for Parole Violation and Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Requirements. 

Scott, last seen in Houston in 2011, was a high-risk sex offender with a lengthy criminal history, which included a conviction for fondling a 15-year-old girl. See Scott’s captured bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=174. This arrest was not the result of a tip and no reward will be paid.

So far in 2013, DPS and other agencies have arrested four Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders, and $10,000 in rewards has been paid for tips that resulted in arrests. The cash rewards are funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division.
