- The U.S. Marshals are seeking the public’s help in locating Luke J.
Warner, one of Hawaii’s Top 15 most wanted fugitives. Warner, 48, was
recently spotted in January stealing merchandise from a Target and
Michael’s store on Dixie Highway in Miami, Florida.
He is wanted for skipping out on a 10-year federal prison sentence for meth trafficking. He is also facing a prison sentence from the state.
“Luke Warner’s blatant disregard of the court’s ruling and his decision to challenge law enforcement has made his apprehension a top priority, said U.S. Marshal Gervin Miyamoto. “Our Deputy U.S. Marshals and our federal and state law enforcement partners are determined to ensure Warner faces justice.”
Authorities believe Warner has ties Florida and may still be in the state, but his whereabouts are currently unknown. They also believe he may be homeless. He has an extensive criminal history to include armed robbery, theft, weapon and drug possession, and should be considered armed and dangerous.
Warner, who also uses the alias Louis Manetti, is a 5-foot-7 white male weighing approximately 170 pounds with graying hair, light brown eyes and a small facial divot on his left cheek. He is known to frequent big box stores such as Walmart and Target, especially their electronics departments. In addition, Warner’s interests include dealing in precious metals and going to jewelry shows, and swap meets.
A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information leading directly to Warner’s arrest. Anyone with information is urged to contact the nearest U.S. Marshals office or the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102.
