AUSTIN – Texas 10 Most Wanted Featured Fugitive Charles Lee Tillman Jr., of Missouri City, is back in custody following his arrest on Nov. 9. Members of the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, including Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Special Agents, arrested Tillman at a house in Killeen. A Crime Stoppers reward will be paid in his arrest.
Tillman, 34, is affiliated with the Crips gang. He’s been wanted since June 2021, when a warrant for his arrest was issued in connection to the May 30 homicide of a man in La Grange. The Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles also issued a warrant for violating his parole. In 2011, Tillman was convicted of assault-family violence and sentenced to three years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) prison. In 2015, he was convicted of manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance and sentenced to 14 years in a TDCJ prison. He was released on parole in December 2019.
Tillman was added to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives List on Sept. 15, 2021, and was this month’s featured fugitive. For more information view his captured bulletin.
Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, 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 this year, DPS and other agencies have arrested 28 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including 11 gang members and 14 sex offenders. In addition, $62,500 in rewards has been paid for tips that yielded arrests.
To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide the information to authorities using one of the following 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, and 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.
Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
