FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – It's been 10 years since a woman has graced the state's Most Wanted List, but gang-affiliated fugitive Damesha Traylor's laundry list of criminal charges has broken the streak, a Texas Department of Public Safety spokesman said Wednesday.

The 33-year-old is a known member of the CRIPS gang and was last seen in Fort Worth. She's been arrested for Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Possession of a Controlled Substance and has logged 17 arrests for Prostitution, according to DPS records.

She's wanted for a parole violation.

Traylor has a number of defining tattoos, including "Sexy D" on her right wrist; a faded "Sexy D" on her upper left arm;  and "Playa Made" in the center of her lower back.

She has a birthmark on the back of her lower left leg and scars on her left forearm, the back of her neck, the back of her left knee and on the inside portion of her right forearm.

DPS says she stands 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 270 pounds. She's worked on farms, restaurants and in laundry facilities in the past.

Anyone with information leading to her arrest can make an anonymous tip at 1.800.252.8477 or by texting the letters DPS and the tip to 247637. The DPS website also accepts anonymous tips.

DPS notes that all tips will be given a tip number to remain anonymous. There is a $7,500 award attached to her arrest.

She is considered armed and dangerous, DPS says. Here's Traylor's wanted poster, and here's a list to the state's Most Wanted List.
