December Featured Fugitive

AUSTIN – Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive Brandon Wayne Hogan is December’s Featured Fugitive. His reward is increased to $6,000 for this month if information leading to his arrest is received from tips.

Hogan, 37, escaped from his work crew at Seaton Cemetery near Leon Junction in Coryell County on September 26, 2022. He is still on the run. Hogan does have violent tendencies and is considered dangerous.

In 2007, Hogan was convicted of assault causing bodily injury-enhanced and received five years of probation. His probation was revoked the following year and he was sentenced to five years of confinement. In August 2022, he was arrested in Coryell County for theft of a firearm, burglary of a habitation, assault and criminal mischief.

Hogan is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs about 170 pounds and has tattoos on his chest, right shoulder and both arms. He has ties to Coryell County, including the cities of McGregor and Gatesville. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, view his wanted bulletin.

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Commission, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of Texas’ 10 Most Wanted Fugitives or Sex Offenders. So far in 2022, DPS and other agencies have arrested 66 people off the lists, including 22 gang members and 35 sex offenders. In addition, $88,000 in rewards has been paid for tips that yielded arrests.

To be eligible for cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of the following three methods:

  • Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
  • Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about then clicking on the link under their picture.
  • Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

All tips are anonymous — regardless of how they are submitted — and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders Lists. You can find the current lists — with photos — on the DPS website.
