West Precinct bike patrol officers arrested a fugitive and sex offender wanted in Texas. On 1/2/12 just shortly after 2:00 a.m., two bike officers were on routine bike patrol within Courthouse Park when they came in contact with a female subject. The park was closed and the officers also believed the woman was selling her services within the park in exchange for narcotics.
The woman was identified and a computer check was conducted. It was discovered that she was a wanted fugitive out of Harris County (Houston) Texas for failing to register as a sex offender.
The warrant was verified and she was taken into custody without incident. At the precinct it was learned that her original conviction was for sexual assault of a child. The felony paperwork was completed and the 54-year-old suspect was booked into King County Jail.
