AUSTIN – Leo Click Jr., 43, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive, is now in custody after being arrested Wednesday in Arkansas. Click was wanted for injury to a child, criminally negligent homicide and parole violation, and his last known address was in Victoria.
Information from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Criminal Investigations Division, Refugio County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force led Arkansas authorities to Click’s location. Click was arrested without incident near Alma, Ark., and the U.S. Marshals Western Arkansas Fugitive Task Force and Crawford County (Arkansas) Sheriff’s Office assisted in the arrest. This arrest was not the result of a tip, and no reward will be paid.
Click’s apprehension is the second Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive arrest in 2014. In 2013, DPS and other agencies arrested an all-time record of 32 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders. Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives or sex offenders.
