Former Rowlett man on 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders list just released

By J.J. Smith. A convicted sex offender who’s been wanted by the Rockwall County Sheriff’s Department for failure to register as a sex offender since 2003 is on the new “10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders” list just released by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

David Ross Baxley, 67, whose last known residence was in Rowlett, is considered armed and dangerous.

Outstanding warrants for his arrest have also been issued by the Yoakum County Sheriff’s office in January, for driving while intoxicated, and by New Mexico State Police in December, 2006, for failure to appear in court. Yoakum Co. is on the Texas-New Mexico border, east of Lubbock.

The list was issued because the state agency is requesting the public’s help to find the ten men listed.

The Criminal Justice Division of the Governor’s Office has authorized a Crime Stoppers reward of $1,000 for tips leading to the arrest of any Texas Top 10 Most Wanted sex offender.

The new list, which will be updated regularly, identifies violent sex offenders who have either violated parole or failed to comply with sex offender registration. These offenders are fugitives and considered a threat to the community. Some of the victims of these sex offenders were children, according to DPS.

“Sex offenders who hide are at risk to strike again,” said DPS director Steven McCraw. “This program will enlist the public’s help in locating these high risk offenders.”

Officials caution the public and advise they should not try to apprehend these offenders, who are considered dangerous, but instead provide tips to officials about these men.

Anyone with information can provide anonymous tips in three different ways:

* Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS

* Text the letters DPS—followed by the tip—to 274637 (CRIMES) from a cell phone.

* Submit a tip through the DPS website via the link located beneath the picture of each sex offender.

The names of the other Top 10 and their last known cities of residence include:

*  Troy James Allison, 57, Lutkin

*  Robert A. Davis III, 66, Irving

*  Antonio Garcia, 34, Houson

*  Michael Edward Glover, 53, Amarillo

*  Jose Luis Lopez, 61, Grand Prairie

*  Gabriel Pena, 42, Clute

*  Dallas Wayne Waddell, 45, Whitney

*  Reginald Okeith Williams, 40, Houston
