Hermiston Police News: HPD Officers Nab Man After 5 Years on the Run

Release Date: 

On the 13th of June 2014, at approximately 5:30 PM, diligent Hermiston Police officers to include the 2 officer street crime unit arrested Rojerro A. Espino. Espino who is now 26 years of age, has been on the lam since the summer of 2009.

Earlier this month the department received information Espino may be back in Hermiston visiting. After a possible sighting this morning swing shift officers observed Espino enter a residence at 320 E Beebe Ave #A. Officers made contact with people at the residence and Espino was taken into custody without incident.

Espino was processed at the Hermiston Police Department before being lodged at the county jail on the following arrest warrants:

  • Failure to Appear on two counts of Assault 3, two counts of Harassment, and one count of Disorderly Conduct out of Hermiston Circuit Court
  • Failure to Appear on a court release agreement out of Hermiston Municipal Court
  • Contempt for Fail to Pay fine out of Hermiston Municipal Court

“I am very proud of the tenacity our officers displayed with seeking out this individual who has failed for so long to be accountable for his actions. I am hopeful all of Mr. Espino’s bad acts can be combined together and we can keep him out of Hermiston”, reports Chief Jason Edmiston.
