BROWNSVILLE - One of Texas' 10 Most Wanted criminals was arrested yesterday in Matamoros.
Tamaulipas state police arrested Javier Cortez Jr. at a maquiladora plant. Cortez is wanted in connection with a capital murder case in Harris County. Officials said he shot a victim nine times during a robbery two years ago.
Texas officials offered a $15,000 reward earlier this week for help in finding Cortez. He will be extradited to the Houston area to face criminal charges.
