Texas Top 10 Sex Offender Nabbed by Task Force

LSRFTF LogoAustin, TX – Lloyd Lester Gibson, III, 67, was arrested by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force without incident this afternoon near the intersection of Oltorf and South Congress after several days of surveillance. Gibson was sought by the Fort Worth Police Department for Failing to Register as a Sex Offender, and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles for violating the conditions of his parole.

Based upon Gibson’s criminal history, the seriousness of his prior offenses, and the potential to re-offend, Gibson was added in November to the Texas Department of Public Safety’s, Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders. Gibson was released in 2010 from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to Houston and subsequently relocated to Fort Worth. It is alleged Gibson recently failed to comply with his registration requirements resulting in warrants being issued.

Dallas area officers notified the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in Austin advising of Gibson’s possible presence in the area. Officers initiated surveillance culminating in Gibson’s arrest at approximately 12:30 p.m.

Robert R. Almonte, United States Marshal for the Western District of Texas states, “I am committed to leveraging all the resources of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force and appreciate our long standing partnership with our local and state law enforcement colleagues collectively removing fugitives who are prone to commit future criminal activity against our children.”

Gibson was remanded to the Travis County Sheriff pending his extradition to Tarrant County.
