WANTED IN THE TRI-CITIES — 

Police say the Tri-Cities top fugitive stripped a complete stranger naked, robbed him and threw him off a cliff.

Jose Navarro is a high-violent offender with multiple warrants out for his arrest. Police say Navarro and two of his buddies stopped the victim’s car and forced him into the backseat. Then drove him to a lake outside Othello, stripped him down, robbed him and threatened to kill him before throwing him off a cliff into the lake.

Officers say the victim was beat-up but survived.

Navarro is 26-years-old and has more than 30 convictions on his rap sheet — many of them violent.
