Are you a real life Sherlock Holmes? If so, you could possibly receive $500 cash reward for spotting Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office “Most Wanted Fugitive’s”. Here’s what you need to know.
The Silent Witness in conjunction with YCSO is launching the “Catch 22” campaign today. Every day YCSO will share information about wanted fugitives from Friday, Feb. 1, 2019 until Friday, Feb. 22, 2019.
If you spot a wanted suspect and directly tip law enforcement to a suspect’s whereabouts that leads to an arrest, within 90 days of the announcement, you could be paid $500 in cash.
The pilot program was announced and launched on Friday by Yavapai Silent Witness Director Chris Wilson. This includes fugitives hiding or from the Wickenburg area, but YCSO says these fugitives could be hiding anywhere.
Today’s most wanted fugitive is 54-year-old Domingo Anguiano Valdez. The Cottonwood Police Department says Valdez is suspected of committing a murder in June 2004. According to a YCSO press release, Valdez is also wanted for auto theft.
Cottonwood police say Valdez, “shot another man during an argument,” and his last known address was in Cottonwood, but they believe, “he is likely back in Mexico.”
Valdez is described as a 5-foot-10-inch Hispanic male, weighing approximately 190 pounds with dark brown eyes and hair. The man’s birthday is Nov. 1, 1963.
If you find Valdez, police say do not approach him, but call the YCSO “Catch 22” Silent Witness line at 1-800-932-3232. If your tip leads to Valdez’s arrest you could be given $500 cash.
