Sheriff: Dangerous fugitive on the run in Skagit County
HAMILTON, Wash. - Police are asking for the public's help in finding a fugitive who fled from Skagit County sheriff's deputies Saturday in the Hamilton area, about 10 miles east of Sedro-Woolley.
The wanted man, identified as Curtis Lee Cameron, 26, got away from deputies in the area of the Hamilton boat launch off Shangri-La Drive at about 3:10 p.m.
A posting by the Skagit County Sheriff's Office says Cameron may have tried to use the Skagit River as an escape route. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, blue jeans, brown shoes and a ballcap.
Sheriff's officials say Cameron has multiple felony arrest warrants out for crimes related to explosives, assault and burglaries. He has additional pending charges for eluding, stolen vehicles, stolen firearms and trafficking in stolen property.
He is known to frequent eastern Skagit County, specifically areas between Day Creek and Rockport, generally on the south side of the Skagit River.
Camerson is believed to be armed and dangerous and his actions to elude police have put the public in jeopardy on several occasions, says the Skagit County Sheriff's Office.
Anyone who sees Cameron or has information on his whereabouts is urged to call 911.
