King County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Cindi West said 28-year old fugitive Shaun Tubbs was arrested the morning of June 27th – and that more details would be available on June 28th regarding his capture.
According to Washington’s Most Wanted, Tubbs was arrested in Covington when a citizen spotted him on a stolen motorcycle.
WMA said he resisted arrest so was tased and then taken into custody.
He was booked for unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and Vehicle Theft and is being held on $200,000 bail.
KCSO said they are looking for and have probable cause to arrest Shaun A. Tubbs on multiple felony charges. They believe he is in the North Bend/Snoqualmie and say friends may possibly be hiding him.
According to Washington’s Most Wanted, early June 4th Tubbs rammed a KCSO deputy’s vehicle when they attempted to stop and arrest him – and then fled into the woods near I-90 exit 32. A K9 unit could not locate Tubbs, but WMW stated deputies did find guns in the abandoned vehicle.
Tubbs is described as between 5’6″-5’9″ tall, 150lbs with a shaved head and has 14 prior felony convictions. Police say anyone found to be helping Tubbs will be arrested for rendering criminal assistance.
According to Washington’s Most Wanted, detectives said Tubbs recently made comments to friends that he will not go back to jail and if cornered, will “go for a gun.” WMW also said detectives have probable cause to arrest Tubbs for more than 10 new felony crimes.
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to his arrest. Anyone with information can call the Crime Stoppers hot line anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.
