Waco-Area Man Named One of Texas Most Wanted Sex Offenders

A Waco-area man has been added to the DPS 10 Most Wanted Sex Offenders list and a cash reward is offered for tips leading to his arrest. All tips can be offered anonymously.

Cody James Guzman, 26, was last seen in Moody, near Waco. Guzman is wanted by the McLennan County and Coryell County Sheriff’s offices for sexual assault and two counts of failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements. His criminal history includes convictions for aggravated sexual assault, indecency with a child, injury to a child and sexual performance of a child.

Guzman is also known by the nicknames “Chuckie,” “Chucky” and “Shorty.” He has claimed to have worked in food service and as a landscaper and gardener, and work records indicate he once worked in the hydraulics business. It is possible he is doing any of those jobs to support himself now. A $1,000 cash reward is offered for information leading to Guzman’s arrest.
