San Antonio, TX - Gregg Michael Scott, 52, was arrested yesterday evening by the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force in San Antonio without incident. An arrest warrant was sought by the Texas Department of Public Safety, where Scott failed to comply with sex offender registration.
On January 18, 2013, the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force was contacted by the Texas Department of Public Safety for assistance in locating and apprehending Scott. Task force officers conducted a brief surveillance and determined that Scott was hiding out at a residence in the 6400 block of David Drive. Task force officers entered the residence and Scott was immediately arrested.
Scott is currently being held at the Bexar County Jail without bond.
On December 8, 1998, Scott was convicted and sentenced to 5 years in a Florida Department of Corrections Prison for sexually assaulting a 15 year old female. Sometime after his release, Scott relocated to the state of Texas where he failed to register as a sex offender with authorities. The Texas Department of Public Safety added Scott to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list 4 days ago and a $3,000 cash reward was offered for information leading to his capture.
