Evans, a known Bloods gang member with a violent criminal past, was arrested when the DPS Criminal Investigations Division (CID) and the Texas Highway Patrol, along with the U.S. Marshals Service and Big Spring Police Department, located him at an apartment complex in Big Spring. He was taken into custody without incident. He was wanted for parole violation. The arrest was the result of a tip and a reward of up to $7,500 was offered.
Bradley was arrested in Texarkana on Sunday evening after turning himself in. He was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Bi-State Jail in Texarkana for processing.
