Man known to frequent Bonney Lake wanted for felony DUI
Tacoma and Pierce County Crimestoppers on Friday released the photo of a man wanted on suspicion of felony DUI and other charges. Julio Dimas, 37, is known to frequent the Bonney Lake and Federal Way areas. A warrant for his arrest has been issued by the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department.
On Feb. 23, a vehicle driven by the suspect crossed the center line of Rhodes Lake Road East and struck a truck traveling in the opposite direction. Dimas allegedly showed several signs of being under the influence of alcohol.
Additionally, his license was suspended at the time of the accident. He has four existing DUI convictions dating back to 2004, 2005, 2008 and 2011. Four or more prior DUI convictions in the space of ten years raises subsequent convictions in the same period to felony status. Dimas was also required to have an ignition interlock device installed in his vehicle at the time of the crash, which he allegedly did not.
Crimestoppers is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to Dimas’s arrest.
Dimas is a hispanic male, 5 feet tall and 150 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
