UPDATE | JUNE 14, 2016, 7PM
The Snoqualmie Police Department said it did not locate Shaun Tubbs once the the warrant for a North Bend mobile home was issued on June 14, 2016.
According to the Snoqualmie Police Department, earlier on Tuesday an anonymous caller phoned Crime Stoppers to report that they had seen Shaun Tubbs in the vicinity, who has a long history of violence and threats to do harm to law enforcement.
Per SPD press release, officers were in the area within minutes and began to call in resources to lock down the area. A mutual aid request was made to the King County Sheriff’s Office to assist in the capture of Tubbs. King County’s Tactical Unit was also summoned.
Tubbs is considered to be armed and dangerous. He is 28-year-old white male, approximately 5’10″ and 150 pounds, and has visible tattoos. SPD says if you see a person matching this description please do not approach him and call 911 immediately.
Snoqualmie Police Captain Nick Almquist said Snoqualmie officers, along with assistance from the King County Sheriff’s Office, currently are at the Mount Si Mobile Home Park, 43010 SE North Bend Way, waiting for a warrant to be issued so SWAT team members can enter the unit where 28-year old fugitive Shaun Tubbs is believed to be hiding.
Captain Almiquist said SPD received a Crime Stoppers tip on the morning of June 14, 2016 with a presumed location of Tubbs, who is wanted on multiple felony warrants. Officers have been at the mobile home park since about 10:15AM waiting for a judge to sign off on the warrant and making sure no one exits the residence.
Almquist said this is NOT an armed standoff and except homes immediately surrounding the unit where they believe Tubbs is located, residents have been allowed to come and go all day. He said their assumption is that Tubbs is not armed.
Tubbs, who has 14 previous felony convictions, ran from police officers on June 4th after they attempted to stop and arrest him on I-90 for probable cause. He ditched the car he was driving and ran into the woods near exit 32, but a K9 unit could not locate him.
Captain Almquist said they hope to have a warrant by 6PM so they can enter the home – and hopefully finally take Tubbs into custody.
When asked if SPD is familiar with the suspect, Almquist replied, “Yes, we’ve been chasing him around since he was a kid.”
