Murder Suspect Caught After Officers In Washington Locate Him Waist-Deep In Manure Bog: Cops
A murder suspect in Washington was apprehended after police located him waist-deep in a farmer’s manure bog, authorities said.
On Oct. 31, Darian Polee, 26, was arrested in Ferndale in connection with the murder of Isaiah Mayshack, 31, in Bellingham 15 days earlier.
Polee learned 28-year-old Matthew Roberts, of Eugene, Oregon, would be in the area with narcotics, so he allegedly ordered Mayshack to get a gun to rob Roberts, police said.
After Polee went to pick Roberts up at a gas station, Mayshack confronted Roberts and tried to rob him of the drugs, and the two got into a gunfight, KGMI reported.
Following the exchange, Polee fled the scene, and Roberts, who was seriously wounded, phoned 911.
Mayshack was transported to an area hospital where he died from his injuries.
Police said officers found Roberts allegedly in possession of over 1,000 fentanyl pills, nearly 100 grams of cocaine. A counterfeit $100 bill was also recovered at the scene.
KGMI reported Roberts was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder, drive-by shooting, and drug dealing.
