CAPTURED — March 30, 2017

The U.S. Marshals Violent Offender Task force and local law enforcement arrested Daniel Gunderson Wednesday ​in the Tri-Cities off of Dallas Road and Badger Canyon. He is being held without bail in the Benton County jail.

A Tri-Cities fugitive recently spotted in the Seattle area has a swastika tattooed on his neck — so he should be easy to spot whichever side of the state he’s hiding in.

Daniel Gunderson is a High-Violent Offender and convicted child predator — busted for preying on a teen girl in Texas.

He’s wanted by the Department of Corrections in the Tri-Cities for Escape and faces two new charges in Benton County for failing to register as a sex offender and drug possession.

He’s also been convicted of assault, resisting arrest, drugs and possession of a dangerous weapon.

His scruffy-haired photo with that devilish look he’s giving is the most recent.

He’s inked with a ton of tattoos all over his body. The easiest to spot are the swastika in the middle of a huge eagle on his neck and symbols below both of his eyes.

If you know where he’s hiding, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or use the P3 Tips App to claim the cash reward for his arrest.
