EVERETT — They are career criminals. And they are wanted.
Police say they are mostly addicts who support their habits by breaking into cars and homes and dealing in drugs and stolen property.
The Anti-Crime Team, a unit of the Everett Police Department, keeps a list of men and women they want off the streets and back behind bars.
They're asking for the public's help to track these people down.
Police around Snohomish County keep similar lists of suspects they want in jail. For a variety of reasons, the other lists are kept under wraps.
In some cases, police don't want the bad guys to know that the law is looking for them. Other times, police may not have enough evidence to make an arrest.
A Snohomish County Sheriff's Office detachment — similar to Everett's — used to keep a list of the county's most wanted, but that team now has been reassigned to focus on gangs.
Everett's unit is a nimble group that's used to crack down on a variety of crime problems, said Sgt. Robert Marshall. He commands the six-person team that includes a state Department of Corrections officer. In summer months, the city's school resource officers join the team to help conduct outreach to youths involved in gangs.
“We do everything,” he said.
When a nuisance is plaguing a neighborhood, Marshall's unit is the one that can spend time trying to figure out ways where added enforcement can make a difference.
Patrol officers and detectives also may ask the team to help tackle graffiti, drug dealing and other criminal issues, Marshall said.
“If a neighborhood has a problem, we're the guys it seems that everyone turns to for help,” he said. “It's just kind of whatever the flavor is.”
And whoever. The team also spends time tracking down bad guys and locking them up.
Marshall said each of the suspects on Everett's most-wanted list should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone who has information about any of the people on the list is asked to call 911.
Police are looking for these people. As of Friday, nine were still on the streets.
Timothy J. Lee, 21 — ARRESTED
Lee has four felony convictions. He's been arrested 19 times and was wanted on warrants for drugs, possession of stolen property and attempted identity theft.
“He's a prolific car prowler,” Marshall said. “He's ripping people off left and right.”
Everett police arrested Lee on Monday. He was hiding in a car.
Tommy K. Dawson, 45
Dawson has a felony conviction for second-degree assault. He attacked his girlfriend with a nail-studded baseball bat, state records show. Marshall said Dawson also has criminal history in California and Nevada.
Dawson is considered a violent offender and is wanted on a Department of Corrections warrant.
Justin James Venturo, 29
Police believe Venturo has been committing crimes in Everett since at least February. Detectives allege he's engaged in forgery, theft, identity theft and possession of stolen property.
He's being investigated by the financial crimes unit.
“He's stealing from people and stealing their IDs,” Marshall said.
Venturo is wanted on a warrant for violating a protection order and for criminal mischief.
Jeremy J. Anderson, 32
Anderson has felony convictions for obstruction of justice, identity theft, assault and burglary. He's wanted on a Department of Corrections warrant.
Michael A Carter, 29
Carter has five felony convictions, seven gross misdemeanors and has been arrested more than 30 times, most recently in March.
He was evicted from a home in the 1100 block of Lombard Avenue, Marshall said.
“Neighbors were calling all the time,” Marshall said.
Carter is wanted on a warrant for felony eluding.
Cal Glenn Moberg, 52
Moberg has five felony convictions. He has 33 misdemeanors and has been arrested at least 67 times.
Marshall said he's a career criminal, drug dealer and a heroin addict.
He's wanted on a warrant for drug charges.
Traci Renee Fisk, 38
Fisk has three felony convictions including eluding police and drug charges. She's been arrested nine times. Marshall said she often spends time with Moberg and is a heroin addict and a suspected drug dealer.
She's wanted on warrants for drug charges.
Jeffrey Glen Tetrick, 43
Tetrick has at least six felony convictions for drugs and possession of stolen property. He also was convicted in federal courts for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. He's been arrested at least 15 times. He's currently wanted on warrants for drug crimes.
“Drugs and stolen property are his claim to fame,” Marshall said.
Jason Avery Cobbs, 27
Cobbs has two felony convictions for unlawful possession of a firearm and drug charges. He has 16 misdemeanor convictions and has been arrested more than 23 times. He's wanted on warrants for stolen vehicles and driving with a suspended license.
Mathew C. Caldwell, 33
Caldwell has nine felony convictions and he's been arrested more than 41 times. Police believe he's a member of the Piru Blood gang.
He's wanted on a state Department of Corrections warrant.
