UPDATE: Suspect Surrenders To SWAT Team In North Spokane

KHQ.COM - The sheriff's SWAT Team was called to a north Spokane County neighborhood Tuesday evening after a wanted fugitive refused to exit and officers believed he might be holding hostages.

Members of the Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force went to the home in the 6500 block of North Normandie to arrest 31-year-old Jeremy Rian Albright on outstanding arrest warrants charging him with Second-Degree Assault and Escape from Community Custody.

About 4:30 p.m., investigators saw Albright inside the home through open blinds and set up containment before knocking on the door. Two teenage boys approached the door, but then retreated into the home.  

Because the fugitive is classified as a violent offender who was rumored to be armed, and because they felt he might be holding the teenage boys against their will, the SWAT Team was called out.

A task force member was able to contact the boys' mother at work and she called into the home and talked the boys into exiting. Albright followed them out not long afterward and was taken into custody. No one was injured during the siege and arrest, although the SWAT Team did breach some basement windows during the standoff.

The Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force is comprised of investigators from the U.S. Marshal's Office, Washington State Department of Corrections, the U.S. Border Patrol and Spokane County Sheriff's Office, as well as other local sheriff's offices. It was formerly known as the Eastern Washington Joint Fugitive Task Force.
