Released by the Texas Department of Public Safety:

The Texas Department of Public Safety has added Noah Earl Allen Jr., 45, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Sex Offender list, and a $3,000 cash reward is now offered for information leading to his capture. Allen has a violent criminal past and is wanted for failure to register as a sex offender.  All tips can be offered anonymously.

Allen has ties to San Antonio, which was his last known address, and to Houston. He has been known to work as a bricklayer and laborer. Allen's criminal history includes sexual assault, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of firearm by felon and DWI.

Allen is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds. His tattoos include a Grim Reaper on his chest; two tears under his left eye; "Rolling 30's" and dice on his left hand; and "Bad to the Bone" and "Pitbull" on his left forearm. He also has pierced ears and scars on his right forearm and near his left eye. For more information, please view his wanted bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/SexOffenderDetails.aspx?id=194.

Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor's Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives or sex offenders.

There are four different ways to provide anonymous tips:
