Hugh ‘Pat’ Doherty: Wanted King County suspect believed to be behind over 100 car prowls

If you’ve been a car prowl victim in NE King County or SE Snohomish County, fugitive Hugh ‘Pat’ Doherty is a likely suspect.

Search warrants were served on his vehicle and one of his residences in unincorporated Snohomish County. Several of his acquaintances, including one of his girlfriends, were recently arrested.

“We believe he has over 100 victims and most of those stemming from his vehicle prowls,” said King County Det. Jessica Santos. “We believe he’s also working with acquaintances and we’ve already arrested some of his acquaintances, including one of his girlfriends, so we want to send a strong message out: Anybody helping or harboring him will be arrested for criminal assistance.”

The 38-year-old’s pending charges include 2 counts of Eluding, 18 counts of Vehicle Prowl (with many more likely on the way), one count of Theft 1, two counts of ID Theft, one count of Resisting Arrest, and one count of Reckless Driving.

His current felony warrants are for DOC Escape and Eluding.

His criminal history includes 9 Felony, 10 Gross Misdemeanor and 2 Misdemeanor convictions.

“Pat” is 6’1”, thin yet athletic build, sunken cheeks and he continuously alters his facial hair.
