Zachary Causey (Dept. of Corrections)

Department of Corrections Southwest Community Response Unit (CRU) officers in Pierce County are asking for your help to find 37-year-old Zachary Causey.

He has an active DOC Secretary’s warrant, as well as warrants out of King County for possession of a stolen vehicle, attempting to elude and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Officers attempted to arrest Causey Tuesday, but he rammed multiple law enforcement vehicles, hit two other cars, and struck the building he was parked next to.

In 2020, Causey eluded police vehicles and once he was apprehended, officers found a firearm in the vehicle.

He has a criminal history including:

  • Attempting to elude police (3)
  • Resisting arrest (2)
  • Harassment
  • Possession of a stolen vehicle (2)
  • Unlawful possession of a firearm (2)
  • Forgery
  • Fourth-degree domestic violence assault
  • Obstructing a police officer
  • Violating a DV protection order

CRU officers have received information that Causey is known to always have a firearm on him, and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Lakewood Police officers recovered the suspect vehicle Wednesday—a white GMC Sierra 1500—which was reported stolen. Authorities say they do not know what vehicle Causey is driving now.

Please call 911 if you spot him. If you know where he stays or how to find him, submit an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County through the P3 Tips App or at P3Tips.com. You can also call 1-800-222-TIPS. There is a cash reward offered of up to $1,000 for information that leads to his arrest.
