Run for the border foiled for missing sex offender with mental health issues, Alik Lebedev
FUGITIVE CAPTURED March 25, 2013 —
The Department of Corrections says Alik Lebedev was arrested Monday in California, as he tried entering into Mexico.
WANTED IN SNOHOMISH COUNTY March 8, 2013 — Police say that Alik Levedev is a former Russian soldier who is suffering from serious mental health issues – he reportedly told officers in Snohomish County that he has the power to release people’s pain — by slitting their throats.
But that’s not why we’re looking for Lebedev – police said he’s wanted for violating his probation for a child porn crime.
“Alik sent several explicit photos of himself and young boys, via the Internet, to an undercover officer who was posing as a 14-year-old boy,” Christina Lacy with the Department of Corrections said.
Police raided his house and computer and found more photos and several videos.
He recently disarmed his GPS ankle bracelet and told his corrections officer he was escaping to Canada.
Alik Lebedev is 38 years old and has been busted for a crime spree in Kirkland.
“Alik stole a car from a dealership, drove to Sears and stole about $4,000 worth of jewelry. An employee caught him red-handed, by pretending he had a weapon on him,” Lacy said. Lebedev put down the gun and was arrested.
Child porn, car theft, violent threats and mental illness – it’s more than enough for us to be worried until Alik Lebedev is in custody. If you spot him, call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS.
