CHELAN COUNTY, Wa. – Witness tampering has been added to the laundry list of charges a Washington State man faces.
Cameron Jeffrey Wilson, 27, of East Wenatchee, was arrested in mid-April after shooting himself in his testicles and thigh with a firearm in his pocket. Rather than heading straight to the emergency room he got into a vehicle with his girlfriend who drove him to a friend’s home where he left the firearm in order to avoid possession charges. After dropping the firearm off, Wilson went to a local hospital.
It was determined that Wilson needed surgery for his injuries. While in the operating room a balloon full of marijuana slid out of his anus. The doctors continued with the surgery, later reporting the marijuana and the gunshot victim to authorities. Detectives responded and searched Wilson’s vehicle. During the search, methamphetamine was located inside the pocket of Wilson’s bloodied jeans.
Following the investigation, a warrant was issued for Wilson’s arrest. Wilson, who has been convicted for over a dozen felonies, turned himself in days following the warrant. He was booked into the Chelan County Jail for drug and weapons possession. During processing into jail, a second bag of marijuana was located in his rectal cavity, leading to additional charges.
Wilson was not done yet, he kept contact with his girlfriend in the weeks following the arrest. As most parolee’s, besides for Wilson know, jailhouse phone calls are neither free or private. On several calls with his girlfriend, Wilson told her not to tell authorities what she knows about the incident. This led to the added witness tampering charges. Wilson remains behind bars where he is being held in lieu of $110,000 bail.
