Texas Most Wanted Sex offender turns himself in
Carlos Lopez Isaac, 59, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, is now in custody after turning himself in Feb. 16. Isaac was wanted for parole violation and failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
Isaac was taken into custody by the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office in San Antonio after turning himself in to authorities. The arrest was not the result of a tip, and no reward will be paid. Isaac’s criminal history includes sexual assault, assault on a peace officer and multiple drug charges. For more information, see his captured bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=273.
