One of Texas’ 10 most wanted was arrested Thursday for charges in Gray County.
Forty-year-old Juan Teofilo Sauseda was taken into custody in Houston for indecency with a child by sexual contact and possession of prohibited weapons.
Sauseda was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2009 for indecency with a child by sexual contact, and was later paroled in 2021, and was required to register as a sex offender annually.
The Texas Parole Board issued a warrant for his arrest after he violated parole and has been wanted since February 2022.
The Gray County Sheriff’s Office issued two warrants for his arrest for failing to register as a sex offender.
A multi-agency task force of state law enforcement helped in the fugitive investigation.
