Just this week, fugitive Curtis Cameron escaped deputies in Skagit County by ditching a motorcycle and bolting in the woods near Concrete.

He left behind his backpack. Inside, cops found two stolen rifles.

Deputies say Cameron had good reason to run — he’s accused of making a bomb and blowing up a vehicle.

Officers say his mom lives in Birdsview, so he could by hiding in that area of Skagit County as well, but it’s closer to Concrete where he’s been spotted recently.

The photo above shows the pot leaf tattoo he has on his right shoulder. As you can see, he’s comfortable in the outdoors and is good at hiding in the woods.

Cops definitely consider him  ‘armed and dangerous’.

Cameron is 22 years old and has several felony warrants out for his arrest.

Given the massive amount of firearms and explosives he’s been caught with over the years, the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force is now taking on the case, and calls this guy a serious threat to public safety.
