FUGITIVE WANTED BY DOC IN KING COUNTY Nov. 22, 2013 –
The Department of Corrections needs your help finding a convicted armed robber who’s gone off the grid.

Christopher Pleger has a history of theft, drugs and driving stolen cars. He was supposed to be under supervision. But now, Pleger, who sometimes goes by the street name Geremy Caldwell is wanted because DOC officers can’t get a hold of him.

Officers still remember his robbery like it was yesterday.

“He went into a local barbecue restaurant, grabbed a bag of chips, decided to pay for them, and when the clerk opened up the till he pulled out a butcher knife and robbed the clerk,” officers said.

Police were able to lift DNA from the case and arrest Pleger a short time later. Now, he’s gone.

Pleger is 35 years old with blonde hair and hazel yes. He is 5’8″ tall and has tattoos of a mushroom, a rose with a dagger and barbed wire on his arms.
