Kennewick Man Runs, But Cant Hide

  1. 1. Tri-City Herald: Breaking news http://www.tri-cityherald.com/tch/local/breaking/v-printer/story/883... Visit the Tri-City Herald Kennewick man runs, but cant hide This story was published Friday, April 27th, 2007 By Nathan Isaacs, Herald staff writer Kenyon Devon Brooks tried to hide, tried to run and then tried to hide again, but he couldnt get away from Kennewick police. Police got a tip that Brooks, 24, who was wanted for several arrest warrants, was in an apartment at 623 N. Arthur St. early Thursday morning. Officers went to the apartment, where they met Brooks girlfriend, Ashley Roseann Weeks, 22, who claimed he was not there. She agreed to let police search the apartment. Thats when Kennewick Officer Isaac Merkl saw Brooks jump out a rear window of the apartment. Brooks slipped past Merkl and two other officers by jumping a fence. The chase was on. Brooks was next seen just east of Volland Street. Then he was heading north on Tweedt Street. And then he ran up the stairs of the same apartment complex he ran from. Thats about when Sgt. Brian Swartswalter spotted a door slamming on an upstairs apartment at the complex. Officers surrounded the apartment. A Benton County Sheriffs police dog was brought to the front door. And a police officer, armed with a shotgun loaded with bean bags, was waiting out back. Neither was used. Brooks girlfriend opened the door for police and they found Brooks on the floor. He was arrested and taken to a police car, in which he vomited after all the running. Brooks was booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of second-degree criminal trespass, resisting arrest, obstructing law enforcement, destruction of property and six outstanding warrants. Weeks also was arrested on investigation of obstructing police. For more crime and public safety news, read Saturdays Herald. Get the entire Tri-City Herald delivered to you at home - subscribe now.
