Juan Jose Villa, 37, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, is now in custody after being arrested on Tuesday in St. Charles, Mo. Villa has an extensive criminal history and was wanted for indecency with a child by sexual contact, deadly conduct and failure to register as a sex offender.

Through investigative leads, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Criminal Investigations Division determined that Villa had checked into a motel in St. Charles, Mo. The U.S. Marshals Service confirmed Villa’s location and arrested him without incident. The arrest was not the result of a tip, and no reward will be paid.
