Stolen Car Crash Suspects Hides in Trash Can–How Did He Fit?!?
A 30-year-old wanted suspect is in the Benton County jail after an eventful Saturday evening, which ended with him being flushed out of a Waste Management trash can by a K-9.
Around 5pm, police were called to a report of a two vehicle crash near 4th and Vancouver. The person who called in the crash (believed to be the 'other' driver) told officers the people in the second vehicle didn't want the police called. They also claimed they heard one of the people say something about that vehicle being stolen.
When police arrived, the driver of the suspect vehicle, Eduardo Larios, fled the scene. Police ID'd him as a wanted suspect on previous charges. He was then spotted in a yard near 6th and Vancouver and began jumping over fences. Police say he was bitten by a dog in one of the yards.
Then as police were tracking him with the K-9, dispatch got another call from an area resident who said he thought the guy there were looking for was hiding in his trash can. The caller had seen the lights and heard the commotion, then apparently saw someone climb into his empty can.
Larios was taken to the hospital and cleared from injuries he sustained in the crash then taken to jail. He's facing 5 new charges in addition to his warrant. Probably didn't smell to good either after the dumpster diving.
