PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A fugitive wanted out in Clark County is in jail after a 3-hour standoff that remained peaceful late Tuesday night.
The Portland Police Bureau’s Special Emergency Response Team took Daniel Cronin into around 8:15 p.m. on Tuesday after members assigned to the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force located him inside the Ridgecrest Timbers Apartments in the 8900 block of North Columbia Boulevard.
Some people living within close proximity of the incident were evacuated while other residents of the apartment complex were asked to shelter in place. There were no injuries and everything has since returned to normal at the complex.
Donald Young lives nearby. He saw the whole situation unfold.
"I did see them bring one gentlemen down the stairs with his hands and he walked down the stairs and laid down in the grass," Young said.
One woman called the situation concerning.
"My parents are right near where it's happening and my Mom said my Dad was concerned as to what was going on outside," she said.
According to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Cronin is a suspect in a burglary and arson that occurred on Christmas Eve 2017 in the Hockinson neighborhood. Joshua Roland, one of the other suspects, was arrested in Northeast Portland in early January.
Roland’s older brother, Michael Roland, was also arrested by authorities in Clark County for allegedly helping his brother evade arrest. Michael Roland has not been charged in connection with the arson and burglary.
When Joshua Roland was taken into custody, law enforcement described Cronin as “armed and dangerous.”
Law enforcement officials also confirmed that Cronin is being looked at in Portland for a potential robbery that occurred. Specific details were not immediately released.
KOIN 6 News has learned that Cronin has waived extradition. That means he will be sent to Clark County within a couple days where he will be arraigned in Vancouver.
