A convicted child predator is wanted in Pierce County. David Thomas is a Level 3 sex offender – the worst of the worst and highest risk to re-offend. He’s failing to register as a sex offender, a crime that’s not new to him one bit.
“Our suspect has been convicted of not registering before, so he knows better,” said Pierce County Detective Ed Troyer. “In this particular case we have two different convictions. One where the victim was 11 and one where the victim was 14 years old, while he was an adult, so this is somebody who should not be around children, especially unsupervised, so we want to know where he’s at, what he’s doing and hold him accountable. He also failed to participate in sex offender treatment.”
He’s been busted for failing to register as a sex offender four times, this will be his fifth once he’s caught and convicted.
David Thomas is Native American and goes by the nicknames “Boo Coo,” “Long Water” and “Two Moons.” He’s 44 years old, 5-feet, 9-inches tall and weighs 250 pounds. He’s inked with a ton of tattoos, including two horses on his neck with a woman’s eyes below them.
