The reward for Reginald O'Keith Williams, 43, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender - and this month's featured fugitive - has increased to $15,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of October. Texas Crime Stoppers tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.

Williams' last known address was in Houston. He has been known to work as a laborer and a cook. He is wanted for parole violation and failing to register as a sex offender. His convictions include sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Williams is 5 feet 6 inches tall and was last known to weigh approximately 190 pounds. He has violent tendencies and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Each month, one offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor's Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips. The higher reward amount will only be paid if the tip comes in the same month the fugitive is featured.

Methods of providing anonymous tips include:
• Calling the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477).
• Text the letters DPS - followed by the tip - to 274637 (CRIMES) from cell phones.
