$80,000 is a whole lotta smackaroonies. Sure, there's a lot of criminals, crooks, and fugitives in the state...but this guy right here tops the charts.

So why does this guy have the nice juicy value of $80K on his head? Simply put, in the eyes of the Texas Department of Public Safety: the more dangerous they are, the higher the reward. Almost like an incentive to "contain the threat", if you would.

For these high-risk, fleet-footed fugitives, their charges may range from a simple parole violation all the way to murder--among other offenses. The typical reward ranges from $1,000 to $7,500.
