Lynnwood police arrested Mathew Wood hiding in his mother’s residence on Saturday.

Officers say he was upset he’d been featured on Washington’s Most Wanted and acknowledged that being on the show had kept him pressured to hide.

The Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force is on the hunt for missing felon, Mathew Wood.

He’s breaking probation in Snohomish County on a drug bust. He’s also been convicted of vehicular assault and the task force says he’s a ‘person of interest’ in a burglary investigation.

Deputies say he’s a heroin user who hangs out in Everett, Lynnwood and Mukilteo and they think he’s bouncing from place to place along Highway 99 right now.

If you spot him on the street or can tell the task force where he’s hiding, call an anonymous tip into:

You must call the Crime Stoppers hotline with your tip to be eligible to receive a cash reward for information leading to a fugitive’s arrest.
