Three People Arrested for Escape Warrants

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.--A routine traffic stop leads to three people being arrested.

When the officer pulled the vehicle over for no light on the license plate, he discovered each passenger was wanted for Department of Corrections escape warrants.

It turns out they didn't report to their supervisor.

This is pretty common according to police. 

A Washington State DOC official says they issue close to 2,000 escape warrants each month across the state.
