‘Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender’ Arrested Within 2 Days of Media Blitz
Viewer tip lead to arrest of David Medina outside of Chicago

David Sauceda Medina (CAPTURED)Austin, TX – David Sauceda Medina, 62, who was featured on the “Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders” list with the Texas Department of Public Safety, was arrested Thursday night without incident in the 600 block of E. Fullerton Avenue in Glendale Heights, Illinois, by the Glendale Heights Police Department.

The U.S. Marshals requested the assistance of the media in central Texas and Chicago, and it was the extensive media coverage that lead to the credible tip and subsequent arrest of Medina within two days.

The Texas Department of Public Safety and the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force initiated a fugitive investigation on the whereabouts of Medina for two outstanding felony warrants for indecency with a child/sexual contact out of Bell County, Texas, and failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements by the Austin Police Department in Texas.

The Glendale Heights Police Department received information from an anonymous tipster that Medina was observed at a housing complex on Fullerton Avenue in Glendale Heights. A brief investigation was conducted, and Medina was arrested without incident at 9:30 p.m. (CST) and transported and booked into the DuPage County Jail in Illinois. He awaits extradition to Texas to answer to his charges.

The U.S. Marshals would like to thank Chicago and Austin area media for putting the information out to the public in recent days and CBS Austin, which featured Medina on its weekly “Marshals Most Wanted” segment Wednesday.
