Bobby Flores Apprehended In Los Angeles
The Duncanville Police Department would like to thank the Texas Department of Public Safety for placing Bobby Flores on their Texas Top Ten Wanted List in September of 2021. In January of 2022, apprehending Flores, a sex offender whose last known address was in Duncanville, was made an even higher priority by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
They featured Flores on their Top Ten Sex Offender Fugitive list and increased the monetary reward for his capture. Within a month of doing so, the extra notoriety and reward paid dividends as members of the Los Angeles Police Department located and apprehended Flores thousands of miles from Duncanville.
Extradited To Dallas County In The Near Future
On Sunday, January 16, 2022, Flores was arrested in Los Angeles without incident. Soon, he will be extradited to Dallas County on his charges of Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements and Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Young Child filed in 2019 by the Duncanville Police Department and the Dallas Police Department respectively.
The apprehension of Bobby Flores is an excellent example of how far the long arm of justice can reach through collaboration among law enforcement at different levels of government. We want to thank the Los Angeles Police Department and the Texas Department of Public Safety for their efforts in Flores’ apprehension.
