Dangerous Cyberstalker & Predator Finally Arrested
James Ecret was arrested Saturday night. He was on the ferry to Tahlequah (Vashon Island - Washington State) from Pt. Defiance docked.
Detectives Say He's Stalking His Ex On The Web, And That's Just The Start.
King County detectives stressed urgency in findingthis week's top fugitive, James Ecret.
He's a convicted felon accused of sticking a knife into his ex-girlfriend's door with a terrifying note that read, "I decide how the saga ends."
Ecret's ex says he's been harassing her for the past several weeks, and has also threatened officers that he won't go down without a fight.
Detectives say he's been convicted in the past of violating a no contact order, which is a felony, and his new threats have cops extremely concerned.
Sgt. John Urquhart with the King County Sheriff's Office paints a picture of just how serious the situation is.
"When you're sitting at a computer, typing away, threatening someone, or stalking them.. that's one thing," he said. "But, when you show up at somebody's house, leave a threatening note tacked to the door with a knife - that really gives us pause - somebody we want to find, and it certainly scares the heck out of this poor woman, who just wants to get away from this guy, and move on with her life."
Ecret has a $100,000 warrant for his arrest for cyberstalking, harassment, and vandalism.
Here are the details on James Ecret:
* Age: 49
* Ht: 5'10"
* Wt: 185 lbs
* Hair: Brown
* Eyes: Brown
Ecret has been convicted of harassment and cyberstalking before.
He has several protection orders against him by a number of different women.
