Jahmar Nykel YOUNG, a Bloods gang member and convicted sex offender, was taken into custody by Dallas PD on March 22, 2017. Working off tip information, DPS CID Special Agents coordinated with Dallas police officers who conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle YOUNG was driving. He was taken into custody a short time later without incident.
In 2001, YOUNG was convicted of Sexual Assault for an incident involving a 17-year-old female. He subsequently received a 15-year prison sentence. In September 2014, YOUNG was released on parole and registered as a sex offender in Red River County.
YOUNG had been wanted since May 2016 for parole violation by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles. Since then, additional warrants had been issued for YOUNG's arrest, including Agg. Assault with a Deadly Weapon (Grand Prairie PD), Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements (Clarksville PD), and Larceny (Dallas County SO).
The arrest was the result of tip information received through Texas Crime Stoppers and a reward will be paid.
