He’s a big-time burglar who’s breaking probation on one of his many busts. “He currently has a Department of Corrections warrant for not checking in and he’s also wanted for questioning in several other crimes,” said Lacey Police Ofc. Alex Ficek. “Kyler has a history of victimizing people. He’s been convicted of crimes like vehicle prowling, burglary, theft and various crimes like that. Lacey Police Department really wants to catch this guy. Like I said, he’s been victimizing people for a long time and we would really like to see him in jail.”

Along with the Chehalis Western Trail, officers say Deckert has ties all over the areas of Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater.

He’s 25 years old, 6 feet tall and weighs 175 pounds.
