Fun times South of here - a two-fer

A little bit of news from Skagit County - both from SkagitBreaking website

First - Friday Harbor Man Arrested in Money Laundering Scheme

Skagit County, Washington- On January 24th, 2016, Swinomish Gaming Commission Agents contacted the Swinomish Police Department and advised Officers of a money Laundering Investigation they had been conducting on a man identified as Christopher Faylor and several other individuals.


A search warrant was granted for the phone by Skagit County District Court.  Results of the search warrant determined that the  illegal activity related to the Casino money laundering was likely from the sale of illegal drugs.    Text messages utilized terms commonly known to be used in communications involving methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine and prescription pill sales and trades.

Good - another one off the streets for a while.

Second - Naked Man Waving American Flag Leads To Large Identity Theft Bust

On April 13th, 2016, around 1:50 pm, Sedro Woolley Officers responded to a welfare check in the area of West Nelson and Curtis Street in Sedro Woolley.

According to a probable cause affidavit, obtained by, a SKAT bus driver had reported seeing an Asian male walking into traffic. The driver told dispatchers that the man was carrying an American Flag and was nude from the waist down. Officers checked the area but were unable to find the male.


The affidavit says Mr. Wang was grinding his teeth and acting very strangely. When Officers approached Mr. Wang they noted that he was walking on broken glass with his bare feet and he got down onto his knees.

Mr. Wang then advised Officers that he was the last Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Survivor and he admitted to exposing his genitals in front of his residence because he wanted to urinate outside. Mr. Wang also told Officers that he was part of the “Men in Black” and that he was President Obama’s brother.

Whatever this guy is on? I do not want any of it. And the story gets interesting:

Officers applied for and received a search warrant for the residence. While serving that warrant, Officers located stacks of unopened mail addressed to subjects other than Mr. Wang. Officers then located stacks of opened letters from Paypal, which included Paypal checks written payable to names other than Mr. Wang with “New Attractions” also listed as Payable.

Officers also found thousands of opened letters with the checks removed and missing. Many of the checks were organized by the subject listed along with “New Attractions.”

Officers continued the search and located several sophisticated industrial servers that were plugged in and appeared to be functional as well as ten computer towers that were not hooked up. The room for the servers was climate controlled and found to be well organized, while the rest of the house was found in disarray with rotting and moldy food throughout. Officers noted a phone in the residence rang continually while Officers were on scene.

As Officers continued their search, they located dozens of prepaid Master Card, Visa Cards and Bank Cards with no printed names on them. These type of cards are commonly used to move money anonymously so that it is unknown who owns the money loaded on the card or where the money originally came from. Many of the cards had notes attached to them with a dollar amount and a person’s name other than Mr. Wang’s. Officers also located a magnetic card strip reader in the residence, boxes of checks from different banks and documents on how to hack computers.

Officers located a 2′ bong on the kitchen floor and multiple packages of synthetic drugs, comm

Another criminal operation shut down for the time being. Good riddance!
