AUSTIN, April 1, 2015 - The reward for Mack Brady Meadows, 64, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender and this month’s featured fugitive, has been increased to $8,000 for information leading to his capture if the tip comes in during the month of April. Meadows is a high-risk sex offender wanted for a parole violation and failure to register as a sex offender. All tips can be offered anonymously.
Meadows has ties to Beaumont and Port Arthur, as well as the states of Louisiana, Tennessee, West Virginia and Virginia. Meadows’ criminal history includes indecency with a child-sexual contact, enticing a child and receiving stolen property.

One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month 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.
