Be on the Lookout

| July 10, 2001

The search for Waagner is one of the largest in U.S. Marshal history. He has a history of burglary and drug charges. Waagner committed burglary and stole a vehicle in Pennsylvania. He drove to Illinois where he was arrested. He was carrying five loaded handguns.
“We still feel he’s probably riding with truckers,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Kevin Jackson said. “He’s hanging out at truckstops and may have befriended a trucker.”

Clayton is 44, 6 foot 1 inch and weighs 195 pounds. He was spotted at a truckstop in West Memphis, Ark., and after a second broadcast was seen by truckers and waitresses at a Petro truckstop in Knoxville. Authorities swarmed truckstops in the Knoxville area and missed Waagner by minutes at a Pilot truckstop.

He is believed to have traveled east to Pennsylvania and then to Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia where he has family. Authorities are concerned that truckers won’t call with tips because many trucking companies have policies against giving hitchhikers a ride. AMW wants to reassure truckers that tips that they call in can remain anonymous.
