Here is what I can tell you about Williams. He has gang affiliations and is known to use meth and marijuana. He'll need to replenish his supply. He doesn't have any cash so he might commit more crimes to get money to continue his run from the law.
Williams could be in Tacoma, Federal Way or Seattle. Crime Stoppers of Tacoma -Pierce County will pay you a cash reward of up to $1,000 if you can help police locate him. If you spot him, call 911 immediately.
