Wanted Suspect Doesn’t Get Far


Wanted Suspect Doesn’t Get Far

Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Deputies located wanted suspect, 31-year-old Christopher J. Greenamyer, at a residence in the 11800 block of North Wilson in North Spokane County.  Greenamyer tried to evade capture but he was unsuccessful.  He was booked on new charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance-Heroin and Obstructing Law Enforcement in addition to his warrant.

On June 10, 2016 at approximately 7:00 p.m., Deputy Daniel Moman and several additional deputies responded to a residence in the 11800 block of North Wilson after receiving information wanted suspect, Greenamyer, might be at the location.

Deputies set up containment around the residence and contacted the homeowner.  As deputies contacted the homeowner in front of the residence, deputies positioned at the back observed a male exit and then go back inside.

Deputies obtained permission from the homeowner to search for Greenamyer.  An announcement was given for Greenamyer to surrender and he was informed he was under arrest.  Not hearing a response, deputies entered the front of the residence to begin searching.

Greenamyer exited the rear door and tried to walk past Deputy Wilson and Deputy Pfeifer as he tried to evade capture.  Deputy Wilson told Greenamyer to stop but he continued walking toward Deputy Wilson.  When Greenamyer walked within five feet of Deputy Wilson, he continued to disobey Deputy Wilson’s commands to stop and he tried to run past Deputy Wilson to evade arrest.  Deputy Wilson took Greenamyer to the ground and although Greenamyer continued to resist, Deputy Wilson placed him in handcuffs with the assistance of additional deputies.

A small canister containing a brown substance was located in the front pocket of Greenamyer’s jeans.  The substance was later field tested and it showed a presumptive positive result for Heroin.

Greenamyer was transported and booked into the Spokane County Jail for his warrant and additional charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance-Heroin and Obstructing Law Enforcement.
