AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Three men on the state’s list of 10 most-wanted sex offenders have been taken into custody over a two-day period.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Tuesday announced that one of the men, 57-year-old Charles Leon Carr, was found in Vera Cruz, Mexico, by authorities acting on a tip. He was deported to Texas on Thursday. Carr was wanted on charges that include failure to register as a sex offender.

Fifty-three-year-old Paul Ray Bass was arrested Friday by U.S. marshals in Houston. DPS says Bass was wanted for failing to comply with sex offender registration requirements.

The third suspect, 29-year-old Derrick Garton, was arrested following a traffic stop Friday in the East Texas town of New Boston. DPS says he also failed to comply with sex offender registration requirements.
