Armed robbery suspect arrested at Richland motel
A short standoff at a Richland motel Friday morning ended with the arrest of a man wanted for a Pasco armed robbery.
Pasco police have not released details about the robbery, but Richland police Capt. Chris Lee said an officer got a tip around 8:30 a.m. that the suspected robber, Michael Judd, had just checked in to the Economy Inn on George Washington Way.
After surrounding the room, officers closed in and began calling for Judd to come out.
After about a half hour, Judd was arrested.
He was handed over to Pasco police officers, who took him to the Franklin County jail.
