13 Aug Q13 FOX’s “Washington’s Most Wanted” Marks 1,000th Capture
Seattle, WA – August 13, 2018 – Q13 FOX /KCPQ, Tribune Broadcasting’ Seattle television station today announced Washington’s Most Wanted has captured its 1,000th fugitive, thanks to Crime Stoppers tips from viewers.
Washington’s Most Wanted began in November of 2008 as an effort by Q13 FOX SVP/General Manager Pam Pearson to provide local programming to keep communities safe. The weekly half-hour program, hosted by Q13 News Anchor David Rose, works in partnership with Crime Stoppers programs statewide as well as local and federal law enforcement.
On Wednesday, August 1, Washington’s Most Wanted helped captured its 1,000th fugitive when the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force and the U.S. Marshals-led Western District of Washington Fugitive Task Force arrested 32-year-old Jacob Glenn Clark in Everett, WA. Clark was a convicted felon wanted for unlawful possession of a firearm, attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and bail jumping.
“Mr. Clark’s a well-known drug dealer. I talk all the time about the heroin epidemic and certainly we want to try to get people help that are addicted, but this is the kind of guy who’s preying on the community and in my mind, that is in the top three worst individuals,” said Snohomish County Sheriff Ty Trenary.
“It is incredibly gratifying to all of us at Q13 FOX that the show we hoped would serve as a conduit for bringing our community together to work toward our mutual safety has been realized in such a powerful way. I want to sincerely thank everyone who has ever contributed to the program over the last decade,” said Pam Pearson.
Over the last ten years, the show has profiled many of the most notorious fugitives in the Pacific Northwest with the mission of giving a voice to victims. Captures have included numerous ‘armed and dangerous’ fugitives including murder suspects, rapists, bank robbers, sex offenders and the most violent animal abusers.
“We can’t lock up people without the help of all the citizens that watch the show. Washington’s Most Wanted, you’re doing a great job. Congratulations on your 1,000th capture,” said Acting U.S. Marshal Jacob Green.
“I’m extremely proud of the work our entire team has done to help vulnerable victims get justice. Thanks to our viewers and followers on social media, criminals quickly learn there is nowhere left to hide when they’re featured on Washington’s Most Wanted,” said host and Executive Producer David Rose.
Washington’s Most Wanted airs Friday night at 11pm on Q13 FOX. Washington’s Most Wanted also airs on Saturdays at 10:30 pm on FOX 41 in Yakima, FOX 11 in the Tri-Cities and FOX 28 in Spokane
