HOUSTON—A digital billboard campaign has been launched offering a reward for the capture of one of Kansas City’s most wanted fugitives. Cray Eugene Williams is wanted on federal drug trafficking charges and may be hiding out in the Greater Houston area.
Williams, a 26-year-old Missouri native, fled Kansas City after a federal warrant was issued for his arrest on November 9, 2012.
In an aggressive effort to bring Williams to justice, the FBI is partnering with Clear Channel Outdoor and Crime Stoppers of Houston. Starting Wednesday, digital billboards located throughout Houston and Harris County will publish Williams’ photograph and advertise a reward in the case. Crime Stoppers of Houston will pay up to $5000 for information that leads to the location and arrest of Williams.
A Federal Grand Jury in the United States District Court, Western District of Missouri, charged Williams with conspiracy to distribute marijuana. So far, Williams has evaded capture and FBI agents need the public’s help to bring him to justice.
Investigators believe Williams may have considerable assets from his illegal activities and may be utilizing counterfeit identities in an attempt to elude capture. Williams has children, relatives, friends and associates in the Houston area. He has been known to visit the Katy, Cypress and Spring suburbs. He also has ties to Las Vegas, Nevada; Los Angeles, California; and Kansas City, Missouri.
Williams is 5’9”, 220 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. He has tattoos on both hands, both wrists, and the letters “MGB” tattooed on his neck. Because Williams has been known to change his appearance, Clear Channel will rotate between two different designs on the billboards.
Anyone with information about Williams should call Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477) or the Houston office of the FBI at 713-693-5000. Tips may also be submitted to Crime Stoppers online or sent by text message: text TIP610 plus your tip to CRIMES (274637). All tipsters remain anonymous.
