Port Angeles man sought on a nationwide warrant arrested in Wisconsin

PORT ANGELES — A 60-year-old Port Angeles resident who was the subject of a nationwide warrant on firearms charges has been arrested in Baraboo, Wis.

Dennis Brian “Denny”‘ Carow appeared in a Wisconsin court on Friday and waived extradition to Washington state.

Detectives from the Port Angeles Police Department will travel to Wisconsin to return Carow to Clallam County for prosecution.

Carow was arrested on outstanding Clallam County Superior Court warrants after being located at a motel by a police officer.

Police had been searching for Carow for investigation of sexually abusing a child, although no such charges have been filed.

Baraboo is a city of 11,000 located in south-central Wisconsin, about 40 miles north of the state capital of Madison.

The nationwide $100,000 arrest warrant on Carow was issued last week.

He was charged Sept. 1 in Clallam County Superior Court with five counts of first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm.

Clallam County Prosecuting Attorney Deborah Kelly, who filed the gun charges, couldn’t comment on why the sex abuse charges weren’t filed because the investigation is ongoing, she said.

Police found five rifles and shotguns in Carow’s home on the 600 block of East Lopez Avenue on Aug. 18, court documents say.

They also allegedly found photographs and other items described by a boy who has accused Carow of abuse, the documents also say.

Carow is prohibited from owning firearms because of a 1972 Spokane County conviction for indecent liberties involving a 10-year-old boy from that area.
