Wanted Suspect, Joshua W. Seth, Arrested
This morning, at approximately 9:15 am., several Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the 3800 block of S. Geiger BLVD for a “tip” that wanted suspect 30-year-old Joshua W. Seth, considered armed and dangerous, was possibly in the area.
Deputies located the room Seth was believed to be in and surrounded the location.
