AUSTIN, Texas - Three men who were on Texas' 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list have been arrested and are currently in custody.
Brown was initially charged for aggravated assault by a deadly weapon, but was issued two bond revocations that led to a warrant for his arrest. The 45-year-old has been previously convicted and sentenced to jail time three different times prior to his recent capture.
Richard Anthony Banda, 34, of Pearsall, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force with assistance from The Highway Patrol, Frio County Sheriff's Office and Dilley Police Department. He was found at a home in Dilley.
Banda had been wanted since April 2020, and was placed on the Top 10 Fugitives list on Oct. 21, 2021. His warrant was issued after a parole violation following two previous warrants for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Christopher Wayne Davis II, 29, of Mt. Pleasant, was arrested by the Longview Police Department in coordination with DPS Special Agents during a traffic stop in Longview. A warrant for his arrest was issued for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and possession of marijuana and a controlled substance.
Davis had been wanted since May 2021, and was placed on the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list on Nov. 29, 2021. This will be his third conviction in the last five years.
