DALLAS (AP) — The Texas Department of Public Safety says a violent gang member on the agency's 10 Most Wanted list has been captured in Dallas thanks to a tip.

DPS on Tuesday announced the arrest of 27-year-old Jimmie Jerome Hiners.

Investigators say Hiners was wanted for aggravated assault and parole violation.

DPS says a $10,000 reward will be paid to the tipster whose information helped Dallas police on Friday locate and capture Hiners after a short foot chose.

The cash rewards are funded by the Governor's Criminal Justice Division.
