Donald Eugene Webb has managed to elude the FBI since he was suspected of fatally shooting a police chief in Pennsylvania in 1980.

For more than two decades, Webb has been on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Now the FBI is increasing publicity around its $100,000 reward in hopes of solving the mystery of Webb’s whereabouts, the Associated Press reports. 

Law enforcement isn’t even sure if he’s alive. He’d be 84.

Described as a career criminal with mob tie, Webb often targeted jewelry stores.

Saxonburg Police Chief Gregory Adams was shot twice in the chest after pulling over Webb for running a stop sign.

Since then, Webb has eluded authorities.

An increasing number of sex offenders are trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

Tucson News Now reports that Border Patrol agents from the Tucson Sector have arrested 46 sex offenders so far this fiscal year, compared to 69 last fiscal year.

Since March 1, agents arrested 10 sex offenders. Eight were from Mexico and one each from El Salvador and Honduras.

“Border Patrol agents encounter sex offenders, various people with criminal histories in their course of duty nearly every day,” said agent Adrienne Crowley, a spokesperson for the Tucson Sector.

“Border Patrol agents in Tucson Sector face various threats in the field,” Crowley said. “Every person they encounter potentially has a criminal history so we really don’t know what we’re working with until we bring that person in and run those records checks.  Agents are working every day to make our community safer…by getting those people off the streets.”

The failed gun-walking operation known as Fast and Furious has been linked to a .50-caliber rifle found at the hideout of drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

The Justice Department shared the information in a letter to Congress, the Associated Press reports. 

The gun was among 19 firearms that Mexican authorities found at the hideout.

The botched sting operation allowed gun-runners to purchase weapons so that authorities could track them to drug smuggling rings.

The Justice Department said the gun was purchased in July 2010.

Nearly 900 firearms bought during the operation have been recovered.

“ATF and the department deeply regret that firearms associated with Operation Fast and Furious have been used by criminals in the commission of violent crimes, particularly crimes resulting in the deaths of civilians and law enforcement officials,” Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik, head of the Justice Department’s legislative affairs office, wrote in a March 15 letter.

He was accused of selling roughly 20 highly classified documents to the CIA for $91,000. Among the information he shared was a list of German agents working abroad.

The 32-year-old confessed at trial, saying he was bored and frustrated.

He also provided “highly important” documents to Russians before ending the contact.

The former director of the NSA and CIA criticized Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, saying his rhetoric is compromising Americans’ safety.

Michael Hayden said Trump’s statements on barring Muslims from entering the country were particularly “detrimental.”

“It’s made us less safe already,” Hayden said.

Hayden said the rhetoric “reinforces their narrative” that America and Islam are incompatible.

Other troubling statements involved Trump’s call to bring back torture to get information from suspected terrorists.
