Police looking for felony suspect, may be in Prosser or Grandview
Authorities are on the lookout for a 29-year-old man wanted for escaping community custody and possession of a controlled substance.
Elias Salvador Sanchez has an active nationwide felony warrant from the Washington State Department of Corrections and a warrant from the Benton County District Court for failing to appear in court on two misdemeanor offenses.
Sanchez is also under supervision by correctional officers for felony possession of methamphetamine. He allegedly had meth in his pocket when he was previously booked into the Yakima County jail.
Officers have been unable to locate Sanchez since he went on the run in March. Sanchez’s last known addresses were in Prosser, where his mother lives, and in Grandview, where the mother of his child lives.
His criminal history includes third-degree escape, making a false statement to a public servant, violating a no-contact order and two counts of fourth-degree assault.
Also on his record is obstructing a law enforcement officer, third-degree malicious mischief, driving under the influence, first-degree criminal impersonation and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
Sanchez is 5’07”, 135 pounds and has a tattoo of a soccer ball on his right calf and a skull tattoo on his left arm, according to Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers.
Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for tips to locate him. Call 1-800-222-TIPS or use the P3 Tips App on your cell phone if you know where they can find him.
