Arrest made in pursuit, but suspect still sought


WALLA WALLA — A man police believed was a suspect in a foot pursuit near Main and Colville streets early Monday morning turned himself in — and turned out not to be the man police were looking for.

According to Sgt. Steve Potter of the Walla Walla Police Department, Devon Millar, 20, turned himself in on probation violation warrants after he learned police were searching for him in connection with the early morning flight that left one officer with a broken ankle.

After Millar turned himself in, police identified Dylan C. Arland, 20, as a suspect in the early morning pursuit, according to Potter.

“Arland may have used Millar’s name,” Potter said, adding Arland was identified through a photo lineup. “It appears he has not been located yet.”

Police describe Alrand as about 6 foot 1 and 180 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. Arland also has facial hair, according to police, and could face charges of resisting arrest, third-degree escape and obstruction law enforcement officers.
