Information From Texas Department Of Public Safety:

A Lubbock man, one of the DPS 10 Most Wanted Fugitives, was arrested after an anonymous phone tip that will bring the caller a $7,500 cash reward.

Terry Tyrell Lawson, 23, was arrested Friday evening by DPS Criminal Investigations Division Agents and Highway Patrol Troopers. He offered no resistance after he was located at an apartment complex at 2310 70th Street in Lubbock.

Lawson is a confirmed member of the Crips gang and was wanted for possession of a controlled substance and parole violations. Lawson has an extensive criminal history including manufacture/delivery of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine, evading arrest/detention, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
