Four Arrested For Armed Robbery In Moses Lake Area

GRANT COUNTY PRESS RELEASE: Grant County Deputies arrested four people this past Friday after they attempted to rob a Moses Lake resident.

Around 1:40 p.m. Friday Jan. 6, deputies were called to 3750 Denton Road Northeast when the resident saw a suspicious vehicle in her driveway and several people wearing blue bandanas approaching the home. The resident also said she saw one of those people carrying a handgun, and that man was allegedly confronting the male resident of the home.

Deputies arrived and the man carrying the pistol allegedly entered the home without permission in an attempt to conceal the weapon. Deputies immediately detained several people wearing blue bandanas standing on the porch of the Denton Road home. Deputies recognized those persons as documented street gang members in Grant County.

Deputies also detained in the driveway a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer occupied by two juvenile females. Inside the Trailblazer were an infant and a toddler, who were removed from the car for their safety. Deputies saw two shotguns inside the Trailblazer.

After receiving permission for a search warrant for the vehicle and home, deputies seized a sawed-off 12-gauge shotgun and a 20-gauge shotgun from inside the Trailblazer. Deputies entered the home and found a loaded .40-caliber handgun with the serial number ground off. Deputies also found an assortment of drug paraphernalia inside the home.

What deputies have pieced together thus far is that several people armed with firearms went to the Denton Road home in an attempt to steal a dog.

The investigation continues and further charges are possible, but thus far the following persons have been arrested:

Christopher McCarrell, 25, of Moses Lake, on suspicion of first-degree robbery, first degree burglary, unlawful possession of a firearm, altering identifying marks on a firearm, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of marijuana under 40 grams. He is lodged in the Grant County Jail.

Three juvenile males are each charged with first degree robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm. All are lodged in the Grant County Youth Services Facility.

Anyone with information about this incident should call the Grant County Sheriff's Office at 509-754-2011 ext. 468 or send information to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
