Did Fleeing Suspect Jump in Yakima River? Deputies Want to Know
Benton County Sheriff's and other law enforcement agencies are looking for this guy, 36-year-old Issac C. Gilbert.
Monday, he was involved in a disturbance near Benton City, but fled when officers arrived. Despite assistance from Pasco PD with a K-9 unit, and West Richland PD, he is still at large.
The search was along the banks of the Yakima River, it is possible he entered the water at some point. As good as the Pasco K-9 units are at tracking suspects, hard to believe he could have eluded one of them, hence he might have jumped in the river.
As of this writing, he is still at large. Anyone who might have any information is urged to call (509)-628-0333. All leads can be confidential. Gilbert is facing two arrest warrants.
