A Moses Lake man was sentenced this week for a crime he committed back in 2013 while on the run from police.

Neighbors identified a wanted man in a back yard and called police. A chase ensued and once nabbed, the suspect tried convincing police he had seen the runaway criminal. He said he'd witnessed the suspect he'd run into a nearby yard and enter a home through the back door.

In addition to being arrested on multiple warrants, he also had nearly two grams of meth in his wallet.
