MLT Driver Honored By Police

A Moses Lake tow truck driver received an award from Moses Lake police for assisting officers with arresting a felon on the run. Moses Lake Towing driver Juan Pineda was honored at this week’s city council meeting for helping an officer on Oct. 12 to get Jeremiah Hamilton into custody as Hamilton resisted arrest. The officer had chased Hamilton on foot. After helping the officer Pineda jumped in his truck and went back to work. It’s the second time this year Moses Lake Towing employees stopped to help officers.
