On Tuesday, at about 1:50 p.m., two Deputy US Marshalls were in the area of Quality Inn on W Quinault Avenue in Kennewick, looking for a person wanted on several arrest warrants.
The clerk alerted them to a suspicious man who was in the area in a vehicle. When they attempted to contact the man, he fled in his vehicle. Kennewick Police officers followed the vehicle to the parking lot of the Benton County Justice Center, where the man fled on foot. He was caught near TJ Maxx and identified as 22-year-old Sharte S.
