FUGITIVE CAPTURED April 24, 2015 —
Sgt. James Maples with the North Snohomish County Property Crimes Unit says Washington’s Most Wanted viewer tips led to the arrest of Urie Lambert in Arlington on Friday.

Arlington police took him into custody and the North Snohomish County Property Crimes Unit booked him into the Snohomish County Jail.

If you need some home improvement help — be sure it isn’t convicted crook Urie Lambert you hire.

“I’m looking for him because he’s defrauded a nice lady in Lake Stevens,” says Lake Stevens Det. Frankie Nelson. “He touted himself as a contractor and promised services of carpentry and remodeling her home and didn’t follow through with much of any of the work and he, in fact, stole property from her including jewelry and some other high dollar items, small electronics and stuff and pawned those items. I don’t want to see any more people victimized by his fraudulent behavior. He’s a master manipulator.”

Detectives say he calls his fake company a few different names including ‘B & B Contracting’ or ‘B & B Construction.’

The crime he’s accused of has him wanted for theft and trafficking stolen property.

He’s been convicted of theft, making a false or misleading statement to a public servant and harassment.

Detectives say he’s from Arlington and think he’s still hiding in that area.
