GREENVILLE — A Greenville man, who had been named as one of the most wanted fugitives in Texas, has been placed in custody.

The information released by the state agency indicated Green is wanted on charges of aggravated assault and a violation of his parole for possession of dangerous drugs. Authorities had warned that Green has violent tendencies.

A statement released Thursday by the Greenville Police Department said that after the release of an article in the Herald Banner Wednesday concerning Green and the state’s other most wanted fugitives, Hunt County Crime Stoppers received several tips as to Green’s location.

Greenville Police officers responded to a local residence, Green subject was not there. Officers continued to check the residence throughout the day.

Thursday morning, Green called the Greenville Police Department and stated he would turn himself in, which he did without incident at around noon Thursday.

Officials with Hunt County Crime Stoppers expressed the organization’s thanks to the tipsters for calling in and to the Officers of the Greenville Police Department for their work in this investigation.
