AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Department of Public Safety has added Clifford Nelson Locklin Jr., 45, to its Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list. A cash reward of up to $7,500 is now being offered for information leading to his capture.

Locklin, who is affiliated with the Aryan Circle gang, is wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, theft and parole violation.

According to a DPS news release, Locklin has been wanted since September 2018, when he left his last known address in Bastrop. Locklin also has ties to other areas of Central Texas, including Travis County. He has an extensive criminal history of burglary, drugs, theft, evading arrest and engaging in organized criminal activity.

Locklin is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighs approximately 190 lbs. His tattoos include an iron cross on front of neck; "Locklin" across upper chest; the letters "AC" near the webbing of his left hand; and numerous other tattoos on his abdomen, back of head, back, both sides of neck, both arms, both shoulders and both legs. Additionally, Locklin has a scar on his right hand.

For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin.

To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters must provide information to authorities using one of the three following methods:

  • Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-252-8477;
  • Submit a web tip through the DPS website by selecting the fugitive you have information about, and then clicking on the link under their picture.
  • Submit a Facebook tip by clicking the "SUBMIT A TIP" link (under the "About" section).

All tips are anonymous – regardless of how they are submitted – and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.

DPS investigators work with local law enforcement agencies to select fugitives for the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and Sex Offender lists. You can find the current lists – with photos – on the DPS website.
