BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a tip has led to a fugitive on the Texas 10 Most Wanted sex offender list being captured in Mexico and returned to the U.S.

Cameron County jail records show Cruz Alfredo Bazan of Harlingen was being held Monday for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements and for probation violation.

Prosecutors say Bazan was caught n Matamoros, Mexico, and turned over to U.S. authorities on Oct. 18 in Brownsville.

Records show Bazan in 2012 was convicted of sexual assault of a child in a Cameron County incident involving a 15-year-old girl. Warrants were issued in 2014 for probation violation and for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements.

Bazan was on the Texas 10 Most Wanted list since May 2015. A tipster will get $3,000.
