ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A man wanted in Texas for alleged sex offenses involving children has been arrested in New Mexico after being on the run for more than three years.
U.S. Marshals Service officials say 39-year-old Tommy Dale Sells Jr. was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon in Albuquerque.
They say Sells was wanted by the Potter County Sherriff’s Office in Amarillo, Texas on suspicion of two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child under age 14 and two counts of indecent contact with a child.
The Texas Department of Public Safety had issued a $10,000 reward for Sells. Authorities say Sells had been a fugitive since May 2013.
