The Atascosa County Sheriff's Office is asking for help in locating convicted registered sex offender Julian Maldonado Sr. He reportedly cut off his ankle monitor.

He's described as 44 years old, 5'3, 180 pounds with black hair, brown eyes and "often has a nearly clean shaven scalp." He also has multiple face, neck, and arm tattoos including an "S" tattooed under his right eye and an "A" tattooed under his left eye. He also has tattoos above both eyebrows.

The Texas Board of Pardon and Parole say that Maldonado should be considered armed and dangerous.

The sheriff's office says that he was living a few miles north of Poteet in the Primrose Subdivision.

Atascosa County Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to his capture.

The sheriff's office says that if you spot Maldonado, call the nearest law enforcement agency.
