Oakville man arrested for outstanding warrants
The Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office tells KXRO that a 24 year old Oakville man was arrested for outstanding Felony warrants. The man was also wanted by the Department of Corrections.
Deputies had been trying to arrest the man for the last few days and unsuccessfully attempted this week on Moore Road near Satsop.
This man has been known to run from law enforcement and a K9 unit was called in to assist with that attempt with negative results. Last night at approximately 7:30 pm, deputies with GHCSO, including K9 Deputy Tracy Gay and his partner Max, and officers from Elma and McCleary PD made contact with the man at a home on W. Anderson Street in Elma.
The man attempted to flee and jumped a fence. A deputy had initial contact with the suspect, but the man was able to evade arrest. K9 Max then made contact, however the man was again able to free himself and flee toward a vacant home. The suspect ran up into the attic and would not surrender. After several requests Max entered the attic and was able to convince the suspect to surrender shortly thereafter.
The man was taken to Summit Pacific Hospital in Elma with minor injuries sustained from the scuffle with the deputy and Max, then transported to the county jail where he was booked on the warrants, and for resisting arrest. Elma PD is looking at charging the man for burglary for entering the vacant residence.
