MOSES LAKE, Wash. - A 38-year-old Moses Lake man is in jail after leading deputies on a high speed chase and then barricading himself inside his own home.
Investigators say deputies noticed Robert Gwinn as he drove near Roads L and 5-Northeast just east of Moses Lake.
Gwen was wanted for outstanding misdemeanor warrants and was to also be served with a protection order.
Accoring to the deputies, Gwinn pulled over at first, then sped off, leading deputies on a five-mile chase at speeds reaching 100 miles per hour.
Officials say on two occasions he aimed his vehicle at deputies who were setting up spike strips.
Gwinn eventually abandoned his vehicle in the Larson Community and took off on foot. A short while later a deputy watching Gwinn’s house saw Gwinn enter the back door of the house in the 1000 block of Vandenburg Loop Northeast.
Gwinn at first refused to come out when directed by deputies.
The Moses Lake Region al Tacti cal response Team, Moses Lake Police K9 Chief, and Sheriff’s K9s Chicka and Chewbacca also responded to the scene and surrounded the home.
After about an hour, Gwinn came out of the home and surrendered. He is now in the Grant County Jail for outstanding warrants and attempted assault on police officers.
Matthew Valenzuela, 33 of Moses Lake, was also found inside the home. He is in the Grant County Jail for several outstanding felony warrants.
