FUGITIVE CAPTURED January 25, 2017 —
It was a rude awakening for wanted fugitive, Jaime Nava, on Wednesday morning — found in bed by law enforcement at a home in Paterson — thanks to Washington’s Most Wanted viewer tips called into Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers!

The arrest was a great team effort: The Department of Corrections Community Response Specialist working with the U.S. Marshal Task Force, along with Benton County Sheriff’s Office and DOC officers Ross Esparza, working out of the Prosser Police Department and David Duran, working out of the West Richland Police Department assembled in Paterson, did surveillance on the home Nava was inside, and arrested him — in bed — without incident.

He is WMW Capture #856


High-Violent Offender, Jamie Nava – a.k.a. ‘Syco’ – is a convicted felon who’s breaking probation on a burglary bust in Kennewick, where he had meth and a sawed-off rifle on him.

He likes taking selfies and photos of his tattoos, including a clown-looking lady inked on his left arm.

He’s 27 years old, 5’0” and weighs 170 pounds.

“Syco” also spells his street name “Seiko.”

Department of Corrections officers think he could be hiding in the small town of Paterson that’s about 40 miles south of the Tri-Cities.
