elsonFUGITIVE CAPTURED June 18, 2013 -- Roger Elson was scheduled for a court hearing on Tuesday. When he showed up, he was taken into custody. FUGITIVE WANTED IN PIERCE COUNTY June 14, 2013 -- Wanted felon, Roger Elson, is an accused meth-maker and bomb-builder. Pierce County deputies searched his property in Puyallup last December, and say they found a meth lab. Federal agents also found the ingredients to make explosives. Elson told them he uses them to make illegal fireworks. His wife was arrested earlier this week -- now Elson has a warrant for his arrest. “This is a subject who`s been making meth a long time,” says Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer. “He`s good at it, but he uses the `old-school` method, which is very dangerous, a lot of chemicals involved, which can contaminate animals, make kids sick, and actually blow up and cause explosions. On top of that, he’s got other ingredients that are specifically made for bomb-making. What he’s doing with those materials? He could be setting `booby traps` on his meth labs, or he could be using them in a more sinister way. Either way, both those reasons, we need to get him picked up and taken off the streets." Elson’s already served time in federal prison for firearms possession. Here are the details on ROGER ELSON:
