Lubbock resident Robert Garcia, 45, has been added to the Texas Most Wanted Sex Offender list. Garcia is wanted for failure to register as a sex offender. Authorities say he is a high-risk sex offender who is considered highly likely to reoffend.

Garcia, who was last seen in Lubbock, has been convicted of sexual assault and attempted murder. He is known to change addresses frequently. He does not have a driver license. Garcia has several tattoos, including "GARCIA" tattooed on his back, as well as a picture of a grim reaper and "LIZ" on his forearms.

DPS and the Governor's Criminal Justice Division are offering a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to Garcia's arrest. 

For more information on Garcia, see the DPS website.

  • Lubbock
  • Irving
  • Houston (2)
  • Dallas
  • El Paso                       
  • Austin (2)
  • Lufkin

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor's Criminal Justice Division, offers rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the 10 Most Wanted Fugitives. Anyone with information can provide anonymous tips in three different ways:

  • Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
  • Text the letters DPS—followed by your tip—to 274637 (CRIMES) from your cell phone.
  • Submit a tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, and then clicking on the link under their picture to submit a web tip.

All calls, texts or e-mails are anonymous.

The program identifies violent sex offenders who have either violated parole or failed to comply with sex offender registration.
