Border agents arrest Federal Way fugitive


U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers arrested a Federal Way fugitive Monday at the Peace Arch border crossing who is wanted by King County for failure to appear in court on a narcotics violation.

Officers turned Daniel Hildreth, 47, over to Whatcom County Sheriff's deputies after a digital name check revealed a warrant in the FBI's National Criminal Information Center database.

"The arrest of fugitives attempting to re-enter the US through our ports of entry is a critical element of our border security mission", said Service Port Director Margaret Fearon "and represents CBP's commitment to protect our local communities."
