Texas Department of Public Safety:

AUSTIN – Robert Charles Grunsfeld, 51, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender, is now in custody after being captured Monday in Oklahoma.

Grunsfeld, who is considered a sexually violent predator at high risk to reoffend, removed his ankle monitor Nov. 22 and fled from a Dallas halfway house.

Grunsfeld was arrested Monday evening by the Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office at a restaurant in McAlester, Okla., and was taken into custody without incident. He was wanted for felony failure to comply with civil commitment requirements.

This arrest was not the result of a Texas Crime Stoppers tip, and no reward will be paid. For more information, see his captured bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=221.

So far in 2013, DPS and other agencies have arrested 31 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including 10 gang members, and $74,500 in rewards has been paid for tips that resulted in arrests. The cash rewards are funded by the Governor's Criminal Justice Division.
