The Eastland County District Attorney Russ Thomason has confirmed that Vance Ray Gwinn, 58, is on the run after escaping from his home monitoring device. 

Gwinn was supposed to appear in court Friday on charges of aggravated assault and engaging in organized criminal activity.

The police scanner reported that Gwinn could be with his wife driving a red Dodge half-ton pickup and is believed to be on his way to Mexico. It was reported that Gwinn is considered to be armed and dangerous and has affiliations with an outlaw motorcycle gang. The scanner also reported that Gwinn made a statement saying that he will not return to prison.
