Fugitive Alert


The Idaho Department of Correction is seeking public assistance in locating fugitive William Thomas Lafferty. He is currently on felony probation for robbery and burglary. The Ada County Court has issued a nationwide warrant for his arrest with bond set at $25,000. For bounty hunters, that could mean a nice little payday. Everybody else stay away from Lafferty and all other fugitives.


Lafferty is Caucasian, 23yrs old, 5 feet, 9 inches, 210 lbs, with black hair, brown eyes and, at least in his mugshot, a demeanor that just seems to say, "'Sup." He has a tattoo of a black rose on his right forearm (how sensitive) and a scar under his left eye (how manly). Lafferty has a prior conviction for battery and should be considered armed and dangerous. His last known location was the 5800 block of Garrett Street in Garden City, but authorities say he could be traveling between Garden City and Salmon. Anyone with information is urged to call CrimeStoppers at (208) 343-2677.
