EL PASO, Texas — A prison gang member on the Texas 10 Most Wanted sex offender list has been captured in El Paso.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says 48-year-old Daniel Garcia Brown was arrested Friday near an apartment.

Records show Brown in 1999 was convicted of aggravated sexual assault and aggravated kidnapping in an attack on a woman in Midland County. He was sentenced to nine years in prison.

Brown in 2010 was convicted for failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements and was sentenced to 25 years.

Brown was paroled in mid-2016, ordered to stay at an El Paso halfway house and was allowed to work. He failed to return to the residence on Aug. 5. Warrants were issued for parole violation and failure to register as a sex offender.
