[ARCHIVED] Update: Escaped Inmate Captured

At approximately 08:40 a.m., an alert citizen in the area of the 900 block of South Colville Road called and reported seeing a male acting suspicious in the area and the caller believed the male was escaped inmate, Cruz-Grijalva.

Deputies quickly responded to the area of the 400 block of East Meadowmere Way and located Cruz-Grijalva who fled on foot. Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Rogers caught up to Cruz-Grijalva as he ran up on a porch and tried to enter a residence. Realizing he was caught, Cruz-Grijalva followed commands and surrendered. He was quickly taken into custody without further incident.

Cruz-Grijalva, who faces news charges of Escape 1st Degree, was transferred to the Airway Heights Corrections Recovery Team who was in the area attempting to capture Cruz-Grijalva.

We would like to thank this citizen for being vigilant and reporting this escapee. It is with the help of our community we continue to work to keep Spokane County safe.
