One of Texas 10 most wanted arrested in Bryan

Posted:

AUSTIN – Sammy Lee Nickerson, 52, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, is now in custody after being arrested on Thursday in Bryan, Texas. Nickerson's criminal history includes aggravated sexual assault of a child and burglary, and he was wanted for failure to register as a sex offender and parole violation.

Tip information led Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Criminal Investigations Division agents to a Bryan apartment complex where Nickerson was located and arrested without incident. Since the arrest was the result of a tip, a reward up to $5,000 will be paid. For more information, see the captured bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=232.

Nickerson's apprehension is the fifth arrest so far in 2014 for the Texas 10 Most Wanted program. In 2013, DPS and other agencies arrested an all-time record of 32 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders. 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 the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives or sex offenders.
