fariasfarias-2WANTED IN TRI-CITIES --
High-Violent Offender, Manuel Farias, is wanted in Benton County for skipping court on a meth bust and by the Department of Corrections for breaking probation on a previous meth conviction.

Officers say he's barely evaded capture several times -- so they're hoping a tip helps his luck run out.

He was last known to be living in Kennewick and officers think he's still in the Tri-Cities area, but say he also has ties to the Sunnyside area in Yakima County and the Vancouver/Portland area.

He’s 37 years old, 5’11 and weighs 160 pounds.

Officers say he uses the fake first names "Jose," "Juan," and "Manolo."

He's been convicted of several assaults -- so stay away if you spot him -- and call an anonymous tip into:

You must call the Crime Stoppers hotline with your tip to be eligible to receive a cash reward for information leading to a fugitive’s arrest.
