FUGITIVE CAPTURED March 16, 2013 -- The King County Sheriff's Office says a Washington's Most Wanted viewer tip from the brother of fugitive, John Haner, led to his sibling's surrender. King County Sgt. Cindi West says Haner's brother saw him on the show Friday night, and called in the tip where his brother was a few hours later. Sgt. West says Haner's brother was there with him when deputies took Haner in on his warrant outside an apartment complex in SeaTac. Sgt. West says a deputy walked up to Haner's brother, who said he was turning John in. She says the deputy then walked up to Haner, who said, "I'm John. I'm the guy you're looking for."

King County Sgt. Cindi West says he's just part of a much bigger problem. "Usually what they do is go back to the place where they're going to wash the checks. They'll forge some of the checks, and then either that person or somebody associated with that person or group will go to a bank and attempt to cash the check. Here are the details on JOHN HANER:
