CAPTURED: Level III sex offender Travis Sparr arrested in Mason County

CAPTURED — DOC officers say anonymous call came into law enforcement on where Travis Sparr could be located in Mason County and the vehicle he was in.  While officers were in route to the address provided, they overheard another law enforcement agency locate the vehicle that was tied to Sparr in a casino parking lot.  Officers arrested him in that parking lot.

So, he is a WMW Capture.  However, the tipster never contacted Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound so no reward is being paid.   If you call 911 or local police with an immediate location or urgent concern due to a Crime Stoppers and Washington’s Most Wanted case, you have 24 hours to submit your Crime Stoppers tip at www.P3Tips.com or via the P3 Tips App.  Please include in your tip information the name of the responding officer that you contacted so that Crime Stoppers can verify you were the tipster.

Sparr has been transferred to the Snohomish County jail where he is being held for Felony Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

ORIGINAL STORY 
A high-risk sex offender convicted of brutally gang-raping a woman at a party — a victim who was a total stranger to him — is on the run and possibly armed.

Travis Liberty Sparr is a Level III sex offender — the worst of the worst and at the highest risk to re-offend.

The Department of Corrections says he’s also a dangerous gang member whose street name is ‘Hambone.’

Sparr has no legs. He is a double amputee and in a wheelchair.

He’s failing to register as a sex offender in Mason County — the same crime he’s committed several times since his rape conviction in 1995.

He’s also wanted on drug charges in Jefferson County and Shelton.

DOC officers say he has a history of threatening law enforcement — busted for felony harassment and intimidation of a witness for threatening to kill DOC officers in Mason County.

He also has convictions for assault, burglary, theft and drugs.

DOC officers say he’s known to use meth and was arrested late last year at a motel in Hoodsport where drugs were being sold and officers think he’s still in the Mason County/Skokomish Tribal area.

He’s 46 years old and known to sell bead work for money.
