We’re learning more about the man, who is wanted in connection to a death of a woman in Colorado. He is now in custody in Idaho. Police arrested him, after a chase, which led to lockdowns at six schools in Caldwell.
Caldwell Police told us there was a nationwide warrant for Warren Dale Watson, 52. On Friday morning, officers tracked Watson to a home near Highway 20/26 in the north part of Caldwell.
Police say Watson was at a friend's house, but took off running when they arrived. Officers from several departments then scoured the area, shocking some neighbors. "Very quiet neighborhood. First time I've ever seen anything like this here," said one neighbor.
Police then captured Watson running through a field close-by. Caldwell Police temporarily put the six schools into a soft lockdown, until they arrested Watson.
"Set a perimeter around the neighborhood. We put officers in the local schools, because we knew he was on foot in the area. We started a door-to-door search, with the description of this person, and in the end, it turned out to be a witness that found this person," said Caldwell Police Chief Chris Allgood.
Watson is a person of interest in the death of a lawyer in Lakewood, CO, near Denver. Lakewood Police said the woman, Claudia Miller was found dead in an office building on Tuesday.
They said a man resembling Watson was captured on surveillance cameras, using the victim's credit cards. However, police have not confirmed if that man is indeed Watson.
Watson is being held without bond, and this weekend, detectives from Colorado plan to come to Idaho to question Watson about the woman's death.
