Lakewood Det. Ryan Larson had a great week fighting crime, and set a record for captures of WMW fugitives.

He is responsible for three arrests in one week.

Det. Larson says, ” A tip led me to Dominic Johnson. With the assistance of Homeland Security Investigations and the ATF, we arrested him at a hotel in Tacoma.”

Johnson was wanted for assault and accused of firing two shots at his brother’s vehicle  during an argument over a woman.

He was arrested about two blocks from the motel where Det. Larson spotted fugitives Eileen Dilbeck and Joseph Williams at a gas station less than a day after they were featured on WMW.

He told the Tacoma News Tribune, “I have crazy good luck like that,” Det. Ryan Larson said. “I’m thinking I should start playing the lottery.”

Det. Larson watches Washington’s Most Wanted each week with his daughter, and will be honored on a future show for his quick actions and outstanding work fighting crime and capturing Washington’s Most Wanted fugitives.

FUGITIVE WANTED IN LAKEWOOD Nov. 30, 2012 —
A brawl between brothers ends with bullets – and one sibling – the accused triggerman.

Lakewood police say it was all over a woman – the ex-girlfriend of fugitive, Dominic Johnson, who was now dating his brother.

Cops say the two were sitting in a car outside an apartment on Kline St. SW in May, when Johnson showed up, told his brother to get out, started fighting with him, then pulled out a gun and fired off two shots that hit the car. One bullet struck the front fender. The other skipped off the hood, but no one was hit.

Detectives say Johnson took off in a Honda civic, and hasn’t been seen since. “We’re treating him as an ‘armed and dangerous’ fugitive,” says Lakewood Lt. Chris Lawler. “We’ve even put out a bulletin that says he is. If he’s willing to fire at family, who knows how desperate he is. He knows we’re looking for him, but I’m pretty confident if the public helps us out on this, we’re going to catch him.”

Johnson is also wanted by Lakewood police for a drug crime.

Here are the details on DOMINIC JOHNSON:

  • Age: 26
  • Ht: 5’10”
  • Wt: 155 lbs
