The reward for 51 year old Monroe Hernandez, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender and this month’s featured fugitive, has been increased to $8,000

Hernandez is this months featured fugitive and the reward will be paid for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of April. In addition, Waco Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for Hernandez’s arrest. Hernandez is wanted for parole violation and failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

Hernandez’s last known address was in Waco, and he has ties to the area. He has been wanted since September 2014. Hernandez’s criminal history includes a 1993 conviction for sexual assault in McLennan County. For more information and updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin.

Hernandez is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs approximately 180 pounds. He has tattoos on his chest, left hand and both legs; and may be using an alias.

One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips. The higher reward amount will only be paid if the tip comes in the same month the fugitive is featured.  Texas Crime Stoppers paid $61,000 in total rewards last year for anonymous tips that resulted in arrests.
