Yaser Abdel Said, a Lewisville cab driver wanted in connection with brutal slayings of his two teenage daughters, is in custody in North Texas after 12 years on the run.
According to the FBI, Said, who was considered armed and dangerous and known to carry a weapon while driving his cab, was apprehended Wednesday in Justin without incident by agents from the FBI’s Dallas Field Office.
The FBI said Said is currently in federal custody and will soon be transferred to Dallas County. According to the FBI, a $100,000 reward was being offered for his capture. It’s not clear how agents knew where to find Said or if someone was eligible to claim the reward.
Said had been on the run since 2008 after police said he took his daughters, 18-year-old Amina and 17-year-old Sarah, to get something to eat on New Year’s Day.
He put the girls in his taxicab and left their home in Lewisville for Irving where he allegedly shot them both as they sat in his cab.GRTWT.
