Spokane Police arrested an Idaho murder suspect Saturday night. He had been wanted by Sheriff's office deputies since late March.

Police say it all started when officers were called to assist Spokane County Sheriff's deputies locate a reckless driver near Freya and Upriver. An officer spotted a man who matched the description of the driver walking in the area of Grace and Chronicle. Before the officer could leave his car, the man took off running through yards.

About three blocks later, officers caught up to the man and took him into custody without further incident.

It was only later that police identified the man they chased down as James Mancuso, a fugitive wanted for Second Degree Murder in Nampa, Idaho. Mancuso had been on the run from the law since March.

The officers reportedly had no idea they were chasing a murder suspect, but were able to get a dangerous person off the streets.
