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.
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.
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.
