CAPTURE UPDATE February 23, 2018 —

Accused Snohomish county burglary and car prowl suspects Shauna Northrup and Jonathan Fowler were booked into jail in Portland, Oregon.  Officers found the couple on Friday thanks to anonymous tips from Washington’s Most Wanted viewers to Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound.

The Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force acted on the information and coordinated with their partners at the U.S. Marshals Violent Offender Task Force in Oregon who safely took the couple into custody.  Northrup and Fowler are Washington’s Most  Wanted Captures #965 and #966 thanks to tips  from our viewers.

It’s another great example of the partnership between the public, WMW, Crime Stoppers and law enforcement working hard to get justice for the victims.


The hunt is on for a criminal couple accused in a prolific crime spree.

Jonathan Fowler and Shauna Northrup are wanted after not showing up to court in both King and Snohomish county.

“We suspect that they’ve been involved in a string of crimes and their MO goes something like this: They burglarize a house, steal items from it like jewelry, firearms, but also key fobs to the vehicles, take those vehicles and then use them in another crime, like doing package thefts from doorsteps, as well as using a stolen vehicle to burglarize another home and commit identity fraud, as well,” said Shari Ireton with The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office. “So, these crimes roam across the whole area, from King County, Mukilteo, several parts of Snohomish County and so we’d really like to get them into custody.”

Jonathan Fowler is 32 years old. He’s been busted for more than a dozen felonies.

Shauna Northrup has been convicted of theft. She’s 31 years old.
