A Hurst man has been placed on the state’s list of the most-wanted sex offenders, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Zachary Aaron Jenkins, 31, is wanted for failing to register as a sex offender and a probation violation in an indecency with a child case, two counts of forgery and fraud.

Jenkins was convicted of the child indecency charge from Bedford last year and sentenced to 10 years of probation. The case involved a 9-year-old girl, according to the DPS.

Jenkins’ last known address was in the 1100 block of Norwood Drive in Hurst.

The Tarrant County Sheriff’s Department issued a warrant for his arrest in July for the probation violation. Hurst police issued a warrant for his arrest in August for failing to register as a sex offender, according to the DPS.

The DPS says he should be considered armed and dangerous and described him as 5 feet 11 inches tall and 220 pounds.

A $3,000 reward is being offered for information leading to his arrest. Anyone with information on Jenkins is asked to contact Texas Crime Stoppers at 800-252-8477.
