Pierce County deputies find wanted man hiding behind giant teddy bear
TACOMA, Wash. – Pierce County sheriff’s deputies arrested a man with a felony warrant last week after he got a little too cute trying to hide from them. The 32-year-old man evaded deputies for a time, but they eventually found him hiding behind a giant teddy bear in the corner of a bedroom. It began Thursday afternoon, when deputies and Department of Corrections officers conducted a compliance check on a home in the Brookdale area of Tacoma. They were there to check in with a man on active DOC supervision, but also had word that somebody else in the house had an active felony warrant.
