Spokane Police: Wanted Man Caught With Help From Alert Citizen

PRESS RELEASE FROM SPOKANE POLICE: Just before 2:00 am Friday members of the Pacific Northwest Violent Crimes Task Force were working with the Spokane police department's Targeted Crimes Task Force to capture a man wanted on warrants from another jurisdiction. Information provided to patrol units by the US Marshall's Office led them to west Spokane.

When officers tried to stop 31-year-old Christopher A. Hill he led them on a brief pursuit. The officer pursuing Hill lost sight of him in the area of Hwy. 195/Thorpe Rd. An alert citizen watching the events unfold from her residence call 911 and advised she'd see the suspect turn his headlights off and turn down Canyon Woods Rd. Officers responded to the area where Hill again led them on a brief pursuit before getting his truck high-centered on a boulder.

A K9 was deployed and found Hill about 60 feet from the truck. Hill was booked into Spokane County Jail on his warrants as while as on the new charge of Attempt to Elude police. 

This is yet another fine example of Spokane's citizens assisting officers in apprehending a wanted individual. Our community is always doing a great job of being that extra set of eyes and ears for us so, "THANK YOU!"
