U.S. Marshals arrest man wanted on 9 warrants at Benton County Justice Center

KENNEWICK -- A wanted Yakima man was arrested on multiple charges Tuesday after leading authorities on a car chase that ended at the Benton County Justice Center.

U.S. Marshals spotted Sharte S. Dashon Kimble, 22, near the Kennewick Quality Inn about 1:50 p.m., police said. Kimble, a convicted felon, had nine warrants for his arrest.

Kimble fled in a vehicle and drove into the justice center parking lot, police said. He ran from officers and was eventually arrested near the TJ Maxx store.

Authorities received information that Kimble was possibly trafficking women out of the Quality Inn, police said. Officers found and arrested an 18-year-old Yakima woman for prostitution. A 59-year-old Walla Walla man also was arrested for patronizing a prostitute.

Authorities found drugs and a gun in Kimble's car during a search, police said. Kimble was booked into the Benton County jail on multiple felony charges.
