Douglas Bush was arrested and booked into the Pierce County Jail on Friday.

Pierce County detectives in the Sex Offender Registration Unit are asking for the public’s help to find Douglas Bush.

In 2006, he was convicted of Rape of a Child 3rd Degree in Clark County.

He has also been convicted of Felony Harassment.

According to official court records, Bush engaged in sexual activity with a 15 year old girl. He then threatened the teen and her family while in prison.

“This particular Level 3 sex offender has a history of not registering and moving around from county to county. Plus, on top of that, he harasses victim’s families so he’s somebody who’s out there, probably doing the same thing, harassing people, moving around and not registering, so we want to get him identified and what location he’s living in and make sure he registers and hold him accountable,” said Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer.

In 2012, Bush was convicted of Felony Harassment in Clark County after sexually assaulting a woman he knew.

Bush did not participate in a Sex Offender Treatment Program while he was in prison.
