Detectives created a Locate & Notify flyer and distributed it department-wide, which led to another officer identifying the suspect as William Watson due to previous interactions with him, police said.

Watson, 30, was taken into custody without incident on Saturday after an officer on patrol recognized him from a wanted flyer.
