On Tuesday, February 12, 2013, Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies assisted Spokane Tribal Police Officer's with a suspect that escaped from their custody near the area of Craig and Deno Road.
Multiple agencies surrounded the area while Sheriff's K-9 Ekko and his handler tracked the suspect. Ekko tracked the suspect near the area of the ORV Park in Airway Heights. Ekko tracked the suspect to a 10' chain link fence that they were not able to get over.
Figuring the suspect was not able to jump the fence either, Ekko continued tracking and located the suspect hiding behind a tree near the fence. Once Ekko's handler told the suspect to come out before being introduced to Ekko, the suspect complied and was
taken in to custody without incident.
