LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A routine check of public records on Friday revealed that Lubbock Police arrested a top 10 Texas fugitive last week.

The Texas DPS web site says Antwoin Laroy Parson, 29, "was arrested by the Lubbock Police Department during a prostitution sting at a local motel." A police report reveals that officers found Parson at the Motel 6 in the 900 block of 66th Street. DPS says Parson tried to run away but was still captured.

Parson lists a Lubbock address on his jail booking sheet. DPS says Parson was arrested within one hour of being put on the Texas Top 10 Most Wanted list. There had been a $7,500 reward for tips leading to his capture. But since police found him without any tips, no reward was paid.

The jail booking sheet says Parson is accused of tampering with evidence and resisting arrest. He was also wanted for a parole violation. His previous criminal history included possession of drugs and aggravated assault. Prior to his capture, he was listed as armed and dangerous.
