Deputies said the man had previous ties to Snohomish County but his warrants were out of Maui, Hawaii.

Police in Maui requested help from the Snohomish County Violent Offender Task force in finding him.

Deputies located him on a construction site in Shoreline and he was taken into custody without incident. He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail, where he awaits extradition to Hawaii.
