DPS Announces Featured Fugitive for May 2024

Texas (KAUZ) – The Texas Department of Public Safety announced Marcos Christopher Alonzo as this month’s featured fugitive.

The reward for information leading to his arrest will be increased to $4,000 in May 2024 if the tip is received that month.

DPS said Alonzo, 46, had been wanted since February 2023, when a warrant was issued by Dallas County for his arrest for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements. In 2005, Alonzo was convicted of indecency with a child by contact following an incident with a 5-year-old girl. He was later sentenced to five years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison. In 2011, Alonzo was convicted of failure to register as a sex offender and subsequently sentenced to three years in prison.

Alonzo is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs approximately 250 pounds. He has tattoos on his head, neck, chest and both arms. More information on Alonzo or updates in the event of his arrest can be found here.

To be eligible for cash rewards, tipsters must provide information to authorities using one of three methods:

  • Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
  • Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information on and then clicking the link below their photo.
  • Submit a Facebook tip by clicking on the “SUBMIT A TIP” link (under the “About” section).

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