AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A convicted sex offender on the Texas 10 Most Wanted list has been captured near Texarkana.

The Texas Department of Public Safety on Monday announced a tip led to 39-year-old Robert Charles Willis.

DPS says a $5,000 reward will be paid to the person who provided information that helped officers arrest Willis on Friday at a home in the town of Wake Village.

Willis was wanted for failure to comply with sex offender registration requirements in Texas and parole violation in Arkansas.

Records show Willis was convicted in 2000 in Miller County in Arkansas on three counts of sexual abuse involving three children, ages four and younger. He had been living in the nearby city of DeKalb, Texas, and had been wanted by authorities since June.
