It took a year of tracking, but the U.S. Marshals office caught up with a suspected child rapist from Spokane.
46 year old Douglas Scyphers was taken into custody August 17 in Phoenix, Arizona.
Scyphers was wanted for charges of Rape of a Child 1st, 2nd and 3rd Degree, Possession of Sexually Explicit Depictions of a Minor, and Sexual Exploitation of a Minor. The charge of bail jumping has also been added to his list of charges.
In July 2015, he didn't meet his pre-trial conditions of release, prompting Spokane County to seek a warrant for his arrest. He took off and has been on the run for the last year.
Scyphers was arrested without incident and is sitting in the Maricopa County Jail.
