Minnesota: Flypaper For Criminals?

KSTP Eyewitness News reports that an extremely high-risk armed fugitive has made his way from Texas to Minnesota: "Armed fugitive may be in Twin Cities".

An armed and dangerous fugitive from Texas may be in the Twin Cities, according to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

Texas authorities have received word that Christopher Harris could be in Minnesota. Harris, 27, is responsible for multiple residential burglaries, vehicle thefts and thefts of firearms, in the states of Texas, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota, according to authorities.

Harris is known by authorities to use violence towards law enforcement and is wanted in Texas as a habitual offender. He is facing a life sentence if convicted. Authorities believe Harris may force a police officer to kill him by pointing or shooting a firearm towards the officer if an arrest is attempted, the BCA reported in a news release.
This is a very bad man. Keep your powder dry for this guy, especially if you're going to a remote camping area.

He was last seen driving a dark colored 2000 dodge caravan with stolen license plates. He may be with Loren Marie Gonczi and Wesley Allen Scott, both of whom are also wanted by authorities. They are all known to be meth users and frequent remote parks or campgrounds.
