It appears at least two men on a list of 50 wanted Pierce County offenders targeted in a gas card giveaway campaign have been arrested.


Alberto Molinari Jr. and Tyler McCoy were booked into Pierce County Jail on Friday, according to the online jail roster and in-custody arraignment list.


Their names are among 50 domestic violence violators, sex offenders, gangsters and other criminals who are being targeted in a campaign launched Friday by Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers.


Crime Stoppers is offering a $250 gas card AND up to $1,000 for information leading to the capture of the 50 men and women.


Find the offenders here.


Molinari, 22, was wanted on suspicion of domestic violence-related charges. He was booked into the jail just after 10:30 a.m. Friday.


McCoy, 27, was on TPD’s most wanted list because he’s been charged with multiple counts of first-degree identity theft.


UPDATE: The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department has learned another man on the list – George Trupp – died in an airplane crash, spokesman Ed Troyer said.


Investigators have learned two others are living out of state. They’ve notified law enforcement officers in those states.


And the tips continue to come in.


“We are getting a lot of calls and people are engaged in it,” Troyer said.
