On 01/19/16, at about 0610 hours, Richland Police officers were dispatched to a disturbance at 2550 Duportail #B209.  The caller advised there were three people trying to come back to her residence after they had left earlier.  The caller had socialized with the group earlier in the night.  The caller reported being concerned the trio may try to rob her.

Officers arrived in the area and learned the trio had fled prior to their arrival.  Officers learned the identity of the trio and learned all three were escaped cons who were wanted for felony crimes.  Officers also learned the trio were trying to flee the area.

Officers set up containment of the area and requested assistance from the Kennewick Police Department's K-9 unit and the Benton County Sheriff's deputies.

As the K-9 was arriving, one of the trio, Kayla Monk, surrendered to officers and was arrested without incident.  As the K-9 unit tracked west of the apartment complex, another one of the trio jumped over a fence and surrendered to containment units to avoid being captured by the K-9.  With the assistance of the K-9, officers completed searching the area and were unable to locate the final suspect, Casey T. Mallone.
