A fugitive wanted in the Tri-Cities for violating his probation and failing to appear in court was arrested in Spokane Wednesday.

Police found Lawrence Adams Jr. hiding in a house with his girlfriend, according to a release. U.S. Marshals said Adams jumped out of a third-floor bathroom window and injured his leg before he was arrested.

Adams was wanted out of Benton and Franklin counties for violating his probation on a cocaine charge and failing to appear on a gun charge, the release said.

Adams was arrested in Spokane after a Washington’s Most Wanted viewer called CrimeStoppers. He was WMW’s 398th capture.
