Wanted man hides from deputies under the ‘Jetsons’ blanket

Pierce County -

You can run from Pierce County Deputies, but you can't hide. Well, at least not under a Jetson's blanket!


Tuesday afternoon, two deputies were on patrol when they spotted a blue Ford Ranger with an expired registration.

When the deputies pulled the truck over, they soon learned that the driver had a suspended driver’s license due to Child Support Enforcement, and the passengers both had misdemeanor warrants; all three were placed into custody.

During the traffic stop, one of the deputies noticed a blue Jetson’s blanket covering covering a large object in the bed of the pickup truck. He also noticed a tuft of hair protruding out from under one end of the blanket. When the deputy pulled back the blanket he found a man hiding under it, who he immediately recognized as being wanted for a felony DOC warrant. The man was being sought for running from the same two deputies 7 weeks earlier. Oops!

The man told the deputies that he was aware of his DOC warrant, but he had been trying to “hide out for another month because word on the street” was that the deputy arresting him was retiring at the month and he “figured he would be fine after he retired." Unfortunately for him, the deputy is not retiring, and he is not safe. The man claimed he was not the driver in the previous incident, and that somebody else must have stolen his mother’s car and wrecked it.

The 23 year old was booked in the Pierce County Jail for Attempting to Elude a Pursuing Police Vehicle, Reckless Endangerment in the 2nd degree, Hit & Run, Driving With a Suspended License, and his felony DOC Violent Offender warrant.
