“You’re just the lucky neighborhood.”

In June a man on San Francisco’s list of the 10 most wanted was arrested on suspicion of DUI in Westpark. Fingerprint matches linked him to the Bay Area.

Last week a man wanted for allegedly murdering his former girlfriend in Reseda, Calif. was arrested in Port Orchard, where he was staying with friends who apparently didn’t know he was wanted.

Then Monday, police descended on a neighborhood in Bremerton to find a man who was hiding out after allegedly murdering a guy in front of 500 to 800 people in Ohio.

I’ve let my subscription to “Fugitive’s Digest” lapse, so I missed the advertisement encouraging murders to come to Kitsap County to hide out. What is it about this area in the past few months that has revealed that if we’re not committing violent crimes, we’re harboring people who do?

Eric E. Robertson, the U.S. Marshal for Western Washington, gives us reason to keep our chins up and not take it personally. “You’re just the lucky neighborhood,” Robertson said in Josh Farley’s story Tuesday.

Wow, thanks. I feel better.
