VANCOUVER – Vancouver Police arrested 43-year-old Casey S. Keith Thursday evening after a two-hour negotiation.
On Thursday (May 5) at about 8 p.m., Vancouver Police responded to a business in the 2600 block of Falk Rd. for a male who was passed out in a vehicle parked outside the pharmacy. Prior to calling 9-1-1, an employee attempted to wake up the individual by knocking on the window of his vehicle and saw a loaded firearm magazine on the passenger seat of the vehicle, along with gloves and a mask.
Due to the likelihood of an involved gun, responding officers attempted a high-risk traffic stop. The male accelerated away and became high-centered on a curb, where he refused to exit the car for over two hours despite efforts of negotiation, de-escalation and offers of medical aid, as it was believed the subject had ingested Fentanyl. The subject eventually surrendered without incident. A search warrant for the vehicle resulted in recovery of a stolen firearm.
Keith was booked into the Clark County Jail for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Possession of a Stolen Firearm and DUI.
