Tow Truck Driver Helps Police Arrest Wanted Felon

A Moses Lake tow truck driver is getting credit for assisting officers with arresting a felon on the run. Police say they spotted Jeremiah Hamilton walking near Lauzier Playfields on Thursday and when an officer tried to stop him Hamilton took off but he couldn’t elude the officer who according to the department regularly runs long distances. Hamilton resisted arrest and that’s when Moses Lake Towing driver Juan Pineda stepped in to help the officer get Hamilton into custody and then Pineda jumped in his truck and went back to work.
