Two on Top 10 Most Wanted List Apprehended

Two fugitives featured on the DPS Top 10 Most Wanted list were apprehended last week.

Joe Robert Torres, DOB 4-7-85, was arrested Friday at a grocery store in Bryan only hours after he had been added to the Top 10 Most Wanted list. Torres was with a woman and several children when he was arrested. The two were arrested at the grocery store on theft charges after they were seen putting stolen items into a diaper bag. Torres gave law enforcement an alias name when he was arrested, but information gathered at his booking provided his correct name. Torres had warrants out for his arrest for dangerous drugs, forgery and failure to appear.

Aaron Edward Binion, DOB 5- 6-69, was arrested Tuesday afternoon at a residence in Austin by DPS Criminal Investigations Division agents and members of the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. Two tips called into Crime Stoppers provided information leading to his location. Binion had warrants out for his arrest for assault on a public servant.

Texas Crime Stoppers will give up to a $1,000 cash reward to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of these fugitives. Anyone with information about the whereabouts of any of these fugitives should call 1-800-252-TIPS (8477). The Crime Stoppers hotline is open 24 hours a day. You do not have to give your name when calling.
