Armed Robbery Suspect Arrested By Moses Lake Tactical Response Team

MOSES LAKE, Wash. - A 23-year-old Kent, Wash. man suspected of involvement in several western Washington armed robberies was arrested on Nov. 23 by the Moses Lake Tactical Response Team.
 
Around 10 p.m. on Nov. 23, Grant County Sheriff's Deputies received a call from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Seattle Safe Streets Task Force seeking help locating an armed robbery suspect who they identified as Jason T. Achurra. The FBI agent provided deputies with a vehicle description and possible suspect location in the 5000 block of Lorri Lane near Moses Lake. Achurra is suspected of being involved in a number of armed robberies in the Seattle area and there was a warrant for his arrest for felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm in the first degree. The FBI warned deputies Achurra may be armed with a high-caliber assault rifle and several hundred rounds of ammunition.

Deputies checked the residence on Lorri Lane throughout that evening without initially locating the suspect or suspect vehicle. Then around 1:45 a.m. on Nov. 24, deputies found the suspect vehicle unoccupied in the driveway at the Lorri Lane address. Because the suspect was reported to be involved in previous robberies and may have been armed with a high-caliber assault rifle and several hundred rounds of ammunition, deputies requested assistance from the Moses Lake Regional Tactical Response Team. 

Once on scene, a police crisis negotiator phoned into the home and spoke to a family member who confirmed Achurra was inside. Achurra came to the door voluntarily and was arrested without incident. He was booked on warrants for felon in possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm in the first degree. The suspect's vehicle was impounded to a secure location and the FBI is getting a search warrant for the vehicle. 
 
"We are happy to help our FBI partners get this suspected dangerous felon off the street," said Sheriff Tom Jones. "As always, the Moses Lake Tactical Response Team did a professional job of safely apprehending someone sought for committing serious crimes."
