Law enforcement in the Tri-Cities are on alert for a missing and extremely high-violent offender.

Department of Corrections officers say many of Thomas Cole’s crimes are violent assaults — against both men and woman.

He’s 6’2”, 250 pounds and officers say he uses his size to intimidate and strong-arm his victims.

He’s breaking probation in Benton County on a meth bust.

DOC officers say a tattoo on his chest that says ‘The world is mine’ shows his take on life and what he’s willing to take from others — as he’s also been busted for robbery and multiple theft crimes.

DOC officers say there’s a high safety alert for law enforcement with Cole.
