Deputies arrest fleeing felon Vincent Nutter in the woods

UPDATE at 9:06 P.M.  Deputies have arrested wanted felon Vincent Nutter after several hours of pursuit, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office announced via Twitter. Police dogs and a helicopter were part of a search in a wooded area, after Nutter left Clearview in a vehicle, then got out and ran, the sheriff’s office said.

UPDATE AT 5:56 P.M.: The sheriff’s office did not locate Nutter and is lifting the lockdown.

ORIGINAL POST: Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies are warning residents of the Clearview area to stay indoors while they search for a wanted felon believed to be armed and dangerous.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said deputies tried to serve a warrant this afternoon at a home in the 7000 block of Interurban Avenue, but the 22-year-old suspect drove off in a car. Following a pursuit, the suspect stopped the car and ran off.

The sheriff’s office said the search is focused around 180th Street Southeast and James Street in unincorporated Snohomish County.

The wanted man has been identified as Vincent Nutter. Both Nutter and his 47-year-old father, Mark Nutter, are wanted by the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task Force. They are also listed on the Washington’s Most Wanted website.

According to Snohomish County sheriff’s Capt. Ty Trenary: “Both are  currently wanted for being felons in possession of firearms. Mark Nutter, the  father, has been specifically targeted by the ATF (federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) because of his involvement with assault weapons, shotguns and other firearms.”

Residents in a one-miles radius from the scene are being asked to stay indoors.
