Got him! Wanted man emails KEPR, gets busted

TRI-CITIES-- A fugitive has run out of room to run.

Crime-Stoppers thanks all of you for tips that led to the arrest of Matthew Wuol.

Last week a man claiming to be Wuol emailed our Newsroom saying he wasn't aware of a warrant for his arrest -- and he'd be turning himself in *today, in fact.

In fact, he stated it was all a misunderstanding, and that he was simply trying to save up enough money to make bail.

Police tell KEPR he was already high-tailing it out of town when he sent that message -- but multiple tips helped them close in on him in the Seattle area.

Wuol was wanted for ignoring federal probation orders on a weapons violation.
