Early Morning SWAT Raid Fails to Turn Up Kidnap-Assault Suspects
Police conducted a second SWAT Team assisted 'raid' on a location, searching for two suspects wanted in connection with a December 1st. assault and kidnapping. A 36-year-old woman, the victim, provided evidence that Police were able to use to determine the two suspects indeed committed the crimes.
However, the raid early Friday morning (Dec. 18) did not turn up the two suspects. It was conducted at 332 Fillmore Street, a location just north of the business complex where Pandora's Box is located, just off Clearwater.
Apparently Police had received a tip that Sergio Delgado and Kristin Link were there. They are wanted for allegedly assaulting, robbing and holding a woman against her will in what is suspected was a drug deal gone bad. The victim had said she had gone to a location to purchase narcotics Dec. 1st, but Degado and Link assaulted her. It is not known if they were the 'people' she was 'supposed' to meet for the transaction, but they were there and 'pounced'.
Various officers from multiple agencies and the Tri City Regional SWAT Team raided the Fillmore location, but Delgado and Link were not there. They did locate and apprehend 34-year-old Cameron Smith, who was wanted on an unrelated charge for Delivery of a Controlled Substance.
Anyone who may have information on their whereabouts is urged to call (509)-628-0333.
