— A man on the most-wanted list of sex offenders in Texas is in custody at the Rock County Jail on $21,000 bond.

Cody J. Guzman, 26, no known address, was arrested Thursday at 6219 S. Highway 51, Janesville. He is accused of felony failure to register as a sex offender and violating the terms of his probation, according to three fugitive complaints filed in Rock County Court.


Guzman is wanted by the Coryell County Sheriff's Office, Gatesville, Texas, and the McLennan County Sheriff's Office in Waco, Texas, according to Rock County Sheriff's Office arrest records. His extradition hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.


KTRK Television of Houston reported Guzman was in January added to the list of most-wanted sex offenders in Texas. He has been convicted of aggravated sexual assault, indecency with a child, injury to a child and sexual performance of a child, according to a KTRK report.


An anonymous tipster will get $3,000 for helping the U.S. Marshals Service locate Guzman.
