KENT, Wash. -- Tuesday morning, Kent Police received a 911 call about a domestic verbal dispute involving Washington's Most Wanted fugitive Kerry Toniago Edwards Jr. aka 'Lil Kerry'. When they contacted him, Edwards repeatedly bragged about being a “Hilltop Crip” and said that he was a drug dealer who didn’t care about the people who had overdosed and died on his heroin.
According to the arrest report, he repeatedly disrespected Officer Diego Moreno who had just died two days earlier in the line of duty and threatened to assault one of the arresting officers. However, failing to maintain his tough guy persona, he cried repeatedly because his knee hurt from an old injury, he skinned his hand during his arrest and wanted a Band-Aid.
Edwards was booked into the Regional Justice Center where he is being held on $210,000 bail for investigation of Robbery, Vehicle Theft and for Failure to Appear in court in Pierce County on a drug charge where deputies say he is facing additional charges.
