The Owensboro Police Department says a person of interest in several recent shootings was arrested in Tempe, Arizona on an unrelated warrant.
27-year-old Willie “Dunas” Watkins will be extradited back to Kentucky, where an Indictment Warrant for Persistent Felony Offender will be served.
Watkins was located based largely upon information provided from a “Crime Stoppers” tip. The Owensboro Police Department was able to work closely with agencies in Arizona to apprehend Watkins.
