BREMERTON — It’s not just tech workers that seem to be attracted to Washington state. Others have been making a break for the Evergreen State as well — fugitives.
This month, four fugitives were arrested for out-of-state warrants in Kitsap County. Sgt. Ken Dickinson of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office said it’s not at all uncommon for deputies to make out-of-state warrant arrests.
Here’s a quick look at the suspects that were recently brought in by officers.
Montley Leonard Fripp was arrested on Sept. 5 after violating his probation stemming from a July 2016 charge of possession of a controlled substance in Ralls County, Mo. In 2014, the mother of Fripp’s three children filed a petition for a temporary protection order against Fripp after a reported incident of domestic violence. The same woman also claimed that in a separate argument Fripp grabbed her hand and broke one of her fingers.
Kennith Sherwood Hoskins was arrested on Sept. 7 after a warrant was made for his arrest after failing to appear in court on burglary charges in Sanders County, Mont. In Montana, a burglary conviction can mean a maximum 20-year sentence, $50,000 fine, or both.
Erinn Anne Kuenzi was picked up on Sept. 12 after a warrant was issued for her arrest in August 2015. Kuenzi was initially charged with possession of heroin in Oregon, but later failed to appear in court.
Travis Keith Lindsey was arrested on Sept. 18 after he fled Texas following offenses of “assault family violence,” and “impede breath or circulation,” charging documents say. ASAP Bail Bonding of Andrews, Texas, withdrew Lindsey’s surety bond after he violated the terms of the bond by failing to report to the group on a weekly basis.
All of the individuals arrested will be transported to their respective jurisdictions to stand trial.
