Dietz wanted on multiple warrants

South Kitsap suspect has a long string of warrants

PORT ORCHARD — The name Paul Matthew Dietz is well-known to Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies and to police departments throughout the county.

The 30-year-old South Kitsap man is a suspect in numerous West Sound crimes and there’s probable cause to take him into custody for ongoing investigations, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputy Scott Wilson said that if you’ve come home over the past several months to find an empty mailbox, then later discovered fraudulent activity on your bank or credit card accounts, Dietz may have played a role in this criminal activity. He is, in fact, suspected to have been involved in multiple mail thefts and credit card cases in South Kitsap.

Wilson said Dietz has six outstanding arrest warrants. Five of those are felony warrants and two are “no bail” warrants.

Not surprisingly, law enforcement in the county is looking for Dietz on multiple warrants.

He dresses in a dark-colored helmet, a black or camouflage jacket and a black backpack. And the suspect gets around on a dark-colored, sport-bike motorcycle, the sheriff’s office spokesman said.

Dietz is 5-10 tall, about 150 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. Tattoos adorn his abdomen, arms and chest.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s whereabouts should call 911 or Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office detectives at 360-337-7111.
