Washington’s Most Wanted, in partnership with Crime Stoppers programs statewide have now helped local law enforcement capture 300 fugitives. Because of this successful partnership, many of Washington’s most dangerous and violent offenders have been taken off the streets and put behind bars. Since its launch in November of 2008, Washington’s Most Wanted has profiled some of the top fugitives in the Pacific Northwest and achieved one of its primary missions – to give a voice to victims. The show features a wide range of stories including violent crime suspects, murder mysteries, missing persons, sex crimes, bank robbers, cyber-crimes and neighborhood safety issues. This weekly show also continues to work closely with all city, county, state and federal law enforcement agencies within the state of Washington.
“Over the last four years, WMW viewers have helped find justice for the families of so many victims. It means so much to those loved ones in pain to know that a viewer cared enough to call in a tip that leads to an arrest,” said David Rose, Washington’s Most Wanted host. “We are grateful to everyone who supports Washington’s Most Wanted and hope they will continue to help us send a strong message to dangerous fugitives in our state that there’s nowhere left to hide.”
Washington’s Most Wanted’s 300th capture was fugitive Arthur Parry. A WMW viewer saw Parry featured on the program recognized him and called police. The officers arrived, confirmed Parry’s ID, and arrested him. Parry is a level 3 sex offender convicted of child rape. He has been convicted of failing to register five times since 2007. He was wanted by Pierce County detectives for failing to register yet again and was arrested this past Tuesday, June 26th by the Puyallup Tribal Police. He has been booked into the Pierce County Jail.
This past weekend, Washington’s Most Wanted featured several of the high profile captures over the past four years including the arrest of Pierce County fugitive and convicted child rapist Johnnie Brown. This particular case brought America’s Most Wanted to Seattle and John Walsh worked with WMW to aid law enforcement in bringing this violent offender to justice.
