WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Marshals are searching for a convicted felon with ties to Iowa after he skipped out on a federal prison sentence for meth trafficking.

Officials believe 48-year-old Luke Warner has fled Hawaii, where he is also facing a state prison sentence. Warner has ties to Iowa, California, Massachusetts, and Florida but officials don’t currently know his whereabouts.

“Luke Warner’s blatant disregard of the court’s ruling and his decision to challenge law enforcement has made his apprehension a top priority,” said U.S. Marshal Gervin Miyamoto. Warner was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison the the meth trafficking conviction.

Warner also uses the alias “Louis Manetti” and has a criminal history of armed robbery, theft, and weapon and drug possession. Officials say he should be considered armed and dangerous.

A reward of up to $10,000 is being offered for information leading to Warner's arrest. If you have any information on his location you’re asked to contact U.S. Marshals at 1-800-336-0102.
