The Texas Department of Public Safety, popularly known as TxDPS, are tasked with many things. Highway safety. Homeland security.  Drivers licenses.  Yet there's one function they perform that isn't a beauty contest by any means despite the presence of contestants and head shots.

Texas Department of Public Safety

Presenting the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives in the State of Texas. What a delightful bunch. Levels of loveliness like you've never seen. I'll bet you get these dear folks all in the same room and one hell of a party will erupt.

Much like a reality show or beauty pageant, each month DPS features a fugitive in the spotlight. Admittedly this is one spotlight in which a fugitive doesn't like to be featured.

They're also not too keen to have their worth presented online, especially since the only way anyone will come into contact with that money is to aid and assist in their capture.

This months spotlight fugitive is worth $10,000.  He's wanted on despicable charges involving children.  I don't want to talk about it; if you're curious, you can check here for yourself.

By the way, if you see any of these folks, call the Texas Crimestoppers Hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS.
