Details: Texas DPS Criminal Investigations Division arrested Sammy NICKERSON on March 6th, 2014 at an apartment complex in Bryan, Texas. He was taken into custody without incident just hours after being added to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list.

NICKERSON had an extensive violent criminal history, which included a conviction for Aggravated Rape of a Child against a 14-year-old female victim. In January 2013 he departed TDCJ prison and established residency in the cities of Navasota, Bryan, and Hearne.

On August 27, 2013, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a warrant for NICKERSON’s arrest for Parole Violation (Original Offense: Larceny and Theft from a Person). On October 15, 2013, the Hearne Police Department issued a warrant for Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registration Requirements.

The arrest was the result of tip information received and a reward of up to $5,000 will be paid.
