Terrace Heights Shooting Suspects Arrested by U.S. Marshals Task Force
Wepato, WA - On Wednesday, the U.S. Marshals Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force (PNVOTF) in conjunction with Yakima County Sheriff’s Office, LEAD Task Force and Wapato Police Department arrested Lindsey Domonique Albright and Louis Francisco Aguilar in Wapato, Washington. Albright, 20 and Aguilar 26, were wanted by the Yakima Sheriff’s Office in connection with a drive-by shooting that took place in the Terrace Heights area of Yakima, WA on Tuesday evening. During the investigation Albright and Aguilar were identified as suspects.

Investigators developed information that both subjects were likely staying in the Wapato, WA area. Team members, which include members of the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office and Washington State Department of Corrections, conducted multiple surveillance operations in Wapato. The surveillance operations resulted in the safe arrests of both Aguilar and Albright at separate locations.

U.S. Marshal Craig Thayer remarked that the Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force trains and works hard to ensure the safe arrests of the most egregious violent offenders. The arrests of Aguilar and Albright are further examples of the valuable work done by the outstanding men and women who make up the PNVOTF in order to make our communities safer.

The Pacific Northwest Violent Offender Task Force is a U.S. Marshals Service sponsored partnership, comprised of federal, state and local law enforcement officers from Washington, Oregon and Alaska. The task force’s primary mission is to locate, arrest, and return to the justice system the most violent, most egregious federal and state fugitives.
