Yavapai Silent Witness is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of fugitive Wade Cole Dickinson, 28, who escaped from the Camp Verde Detention Center Saturday afternoon.

On Saturday, July 12, around 2:30 p.m., Dickinson was able to scale a wall in the recreation yard of the Detention Center, separate overhead security fencing to access the roof and climb down to ground level. Dickinson then ran across the parking area and was seen attempting to steal a small pick-up truck parked outside a business located along Highway 260 in front of the jail. When the business owners came outside, Dickinson ran across Highway 260 and then east along Old Highway 279 out of sight. The owners immediately called YCSO to report a possible escape. The jail was quickly locked down and following a head count, Dickinson was confirmed missing.

Just before 11 p.m. that night, YCSO received a credible report Dickinson was seen on Middle Verde Road in the area of Interstate 17. An exhaustive search with the assistance of multiple agencies and tracking dogs was unsuccessful and concluded late Sunday. YCSO still cautions residents in the Camp Verde area to remain on alert as Dickinson does have acquaintances in the Camp Verde area.

An internal review into the escape incident is under way.

Prior to the escape, Dickinson was involved in several criminal cases including fraud schemes, false reporting of a stolen vehicle, theft, prohibited possession of a firearm, weapons misconduct, possession of dangerous drugs, etc., all while he was on probation. He was expecting a 24-year prison term.

Victim's included business associates, friends and an insurance company.

YCSO has received numerous phone calls since the escape. Every credible lead will be checked. If someone wishes to remain anonymous, please call Silent Witness, 1-800-932-3232 . If you see the fugitive, call 911. Do not approach Dickinson.

Anyone who provides aid, support, concealment, or hinders investigative efforts with knowledge Dickinson is a wanted fugitive, could be arrested and charged criminally.

A wanted poster with details on Dickinson's physical description can be accessed in the alert box on our homepage at Also, check the alert box for the latest updates.
