It's been more than ten years since a woman has made the Texas Department of Safety's Ten Most Wanted List, but we don't think anyone is going to tell Damesha Roshun Traylor she doesn't deserve the honor.

Traylor is a 5-4, 270-pound ball of "Sexy D," according to one of her tattoos. (The other says she is "Playa Made.")

Her criminal career includes 17 arrests for prostitution, but that's not what drove her to the DPS big time. The member of the Crips has a record that also includes aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a controlled substance.

She's a Fort Worth native who has also worked "on farms, in restaurants and laundry facilities," DPS says.

She's specifically wanted now on a parole violation, but if you see her, DPS doesn't recommend doing anything but contacting them. You may get a $7,500 reward for it.

You can tip anonymously through the DPS Web site, by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-252-TIPS or by texting "DPS" and your tip to 274637 on your cell.
