FUGITIVE CAPTURED August 30, 2016 --
Danial Surprenant was arrested and booked into the Okanogan County Jail on Tuesday and transferred to the Pierce County Jail on Friday.

When convicted child predator, Danial Surprenant, got busted for preying on a teen girl in 2006 he told detectives he was “just trying to teach the victim about sex to be helpful.”

Now, he’s wanted in Pierce County for failing to register as a sex offender. "He's been off the grid for two years and a 13 year old girl was a victim,” says Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer. “He changed his story many times, even in court and through the court process and jail, so we want to know where he's at and if he's living around any other girls and we want him to conform to what the court ordered him to do."

Surprenant has been busted for failing to register before.

He's 49 years old, 5’10” and weighs 175 pounds.

He has a scar on his stomach and right ankle.
