As a police detective Chris was intimately involved in the investigation that ultimately resulted in the release, from prison, of two persons who were wrongly convicted of homicide.

As a Private Investigator:  

He was integral to an investigation that resulted in the arrest and conviction of a person who had committed a homicide 30 years earlier in Lewis County, WA.

He spearheaded the dismantling of a theft ring in Vancouver WA that resulted in several arrests and the recovery of a substantial amount of stolen property  for a large US corporation.

He conducted an investigation into the theft of a large amount of stolen pipe from forest land in Skamania County.  This resulted in an arrest and prosecution.
