Gulf Coast Task Force Captures Sex Offender After 18 Years

Corpus Christi, TX – The Gulf Coast Violent Offender and Fugitive Task Force (GCVOFTF) arrested David Charles Eubank (56) for Failure to Appear. Eubank was convicted in absentia for Attempted Child Molestation in 1994 after he fled during the trail in Monroe County, Indiana.

Investigators in Indiana contacted the U.S. Marshal Services after receiving information that Eubanks may have been hiding in the Coastal Bend area under an assumed name. The GCVOFTF arrested Eubank in the 200 Block of Alameda in Corpus Christi, TX. Eubank was transported to the Nueces County Jail where he awaits extradition to Indiana.

The Gulf Coast Violent Offender Fugitive Task Force is a team comprised of law enforcement officers from the U.S. Marshals, Corpus Christi Police Department, Nueces and Victoria Counties Sheriff’s Departments, and the Texas Department of Corrections. The task force objective is to seek out and arrest violent criminals, gang members, and sex offenders. U.S. Marshals-led district task forces arrested 81,900 state and local fugitives in FY 2010, clearing approximately 108,200 state and local felony warrants.
