AUSTIN – Two of the Texas 10 Most Wanted — one sex offender and one fugitive — were recently captured. Zachary Michael Boyett, 24, (pictured left) was arrested on March 20 in Dallas, and Jeremy Edwin Evans, 31, (pictured right) was arrested on March 12 in New Orleans. The arrests were not the result of Crime Stoppers tips; therefore, no rewards will be paid.
Working off investigative information, Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Special Agents and the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office located and apprehended Boyett at a residence in southeast Dallas. The Sulphur Springs Police Department provided assistance with the investigation.
Boyett had been wanted since August 2018 for parole violation and failure to register as a sex offender after absconding from his last known address in Sulphur Springs. His criminal history includes a 2015 conviction of aggravated sexual assault of a child after an incident involving a 13-year-old girl in Rockwall County. For more information, see his captured bulletin.
Working off investigative information developed by DPS Special Agents, members of the U.S. Marshals Service New Orleans Task Force located and apprehended Evans at a residence in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Evans had been wanted since January 2018 for parole violation – and since February 2018 for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after absconding from his last known address in Bryan. His criminal history includes aggravated robbery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful carrying a weapon, disorderly conduct and burglary of a habitation. For more information, see his captured bulletin.
So far in 2019, DPS and other agencies have arrested five Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including three sex offenders and one gang member, and $5,000 in rewards have been paid for tips that resulted in arrests.
