[ARCHIVED] Flock System and Agency Collaboration Help Locate Domestic Violence Suspect

Flock System and Agency Collaboration Help Locate Domestic Violence Suspect

Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a domestic violence call, developed probable cause to charge the suspect with Assault 4th Degree (DV) and Malicious Mischief 3rd Degree (DV).  However, the suspect left the scene prior to their arrival, and attempts to locate him were unsuccessful.  The Flock camera system was checked for the suspect’s vehicle, but no positive results were found following the incident.  The license plate was entered into the system to alert, noting probable cause existed for the suspect’s arrest.  Later in the evening, a Flock alert showed the vehicle was captured by a camera going westbound on W. Trails Road near N. Flint Road.  Soon after, the unoccupied vehicle was located at the casino by Kalispel Tribal Police.  The suspect was located, positively identified, and later arrested. 

On August 10, 2023, at approximately 3:40 am, Spokane Valley Deputies responded to the 10900 block of E. Sinto Avenue for a reported domestic violence call.  

After talking with the victim and witness, Deputies learned the suspect, identified as 47-year-old Anthony J. Sarquilla, was involved in an argument with a family member that escalated into an assault where Anthony broke a metal door of the residence and threw lawn furniture at the victim, possibly breaking his finger.   

Deputies developed probable cause to charge Anthony with Assault 4th Degree (DV) and Malicious Mischief 3rd Degree (DV).  With information, Anthony left the location in a red Nissan pickup with a white camper; they checked the Flock system using the vehicle’s license plate but could not locate any results after the incident.  

Spokane Regional Emergency Communications (SREC) personnel entered the vehicle and license plate into the system’s hotlist, advising there was probable cause to arrest Anthony should he be located.  

At approximately 6:45 pm, later in the day, SREC advised via radio that Anthony’s vehicle just showed as westbound on W. Trails Road near N. Flint Road in a Flock alert.  Minutes later, a Kalispel Tribal Police Officer located the unoccupied vehicle in the casino's parking lot.  Working with security, Anthony was located and safely detained as a Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy responded to assist.

The arriving Deputy confirmed Anthony’s identity, reviewed the probable cause in support of his arrest, and informed him of his charges. 

Anthony was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Assault 4th Degree (DV) and Malicious Mischief 3rd Degree (DV). On August 11, 2023, after appearing before Airway Heights Municipal Court Commissioner D. Crull, he was released on his own recognizance.
