AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) announces an increased reward for fugitive Hardy Carroll Lloyd, who is wanted for making terroristic threats. Texas Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to Lloyd’s arrest. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
Hardy Carroll Lloyd, 44, is wanted by authorities after posting a series of threatening comments online where he promises to carry a firearm onto the Texas State Capitol grounds this weekend and challenge any law enforcement officer who tries to take enforcement actions against him. Lloyd is a convicted felon and cannot legally carry a firearm.
Lloyd, of Pittsburgh, Pa., is five feet, 11 inches tall and weighs about 250 pounds. He is a known white supremacist.
Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of a suspect responsible for a particular crime.
To be eligible for cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities using one of two methods:
- Call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
- Submit a tip online.
All tips are anonymous, regardless of how they are submitted, and tipsters will be provided a tip number instead of using a name.
Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
