Reward Offered for Most Wanted Fugitive, Gang Member from Nacogdoches

 

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Jack Earl Sterns Jr., 27, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list, and a cash reward of up to $7,500 is now being offered for information leading to his capture. Sterns, affiliated with the Crips gang, is wanted for parole violation, aggravated robbery and evading arrest. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

 

Sterns has been wanted since December 2017 and has ties to Nacogdoches County. His criminal history includes aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, engaging in organized criminal activity, assault, unlawful carrying of a weapon, deadly conduct, evading arrest/detention and drug possession.

 

Sterns is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs approximately 230 pounds. He has tattoos on his abdomen, back, chest, both arms and right leg, and scars on his abdomen, back, left leg and right forearm. Sterns may also be known by the nickname “Jay Jay.” For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin.

 

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. Last year, Texas Crime Stoppers paid $61,000 in total rewards for anonymous tips that resulted in arrests.

 

To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of the five following methods:

 

  • Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
  • Text the letters “DPS” – followed by your tip – to 274637 (CRIMES) from your cell phone.
  • Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, and then clicking on the link under their picture.
  • Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).
  • Submit a tip through the DPS Mobile App. The app is currently available for iPhone users on the Apple App Store and for Android users on Google Play.

 

All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted – and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Sex Offender lists. You can find the current lists – with photos – on the DPS website

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
