Another Texas Top 10 Most Wanted in custody
Dennis Wayne Capps, who had been on the Texas Top 10 Most Wanted list since March 2009, was apprehended in Nicaragua by U.S. Marshals on Oct. 22 after an investigation by Texas DPS agents determined that he was in that country. He was deported from Nicaragua on Oct. 24 and was taken to the Cameron County Jail in Brownsville, Texas, on Oct. 27.
Capps had absconded after posting a $100,000 bond in connection with the June 10, 2006, murder of a 44-year-old man during a robbery. Capps faces a capital murder charge in Cameron County.
