FUGITIVE CAPTURED July 30, 2014 —
SeaTac police say the alleged thief, Frederick Hawthorne, was arrested by King County deputies in Skyway on Wednesday, after he was identified by Washington’s Most Wanted viewers.

WANTED IN SEATAC July 19, 2014 — 

Detectives say more than $10,000 was swiped from the back office of a gas station in SeaTac by this customer turned crook.

It happened right in the middle of the day — and it was all caught on camera.

Checkout the brazen money boost from that back office. He peeks in, then comes back out and looks around.

It looks like he thinks about going into the woman’s bathroom again — then quickly darts back into the office and wastes no time grabbing the stacks of cash from the desk and stuffing them into his shorts.

He hit the station on June 11th, so if you recognize him, or know about someone who suddenly became $10,000 richer around that time, let SeaTac police know by calling an anonymous tip into:
