Bruce McCain: One Of Texas' Top 10 Sex Offenders Wanted In Houston
The Department of Public Safety really wants to get its hands on Bruce McCain, 51. He escaped from a Houston halfway house last week, and he's a violent sex offender.
DPS has named him one of the Top 10 sex offenders and Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward.
McCain was last seen near the Loop and Beaumont Highway about 9:30 p.m. Friday, a DPS spokesperson says.
He'd been paroled in May for two 1986 sexual assaults in Nueces County and had an electronic ankle bracelet placed on him.
