So often, we hear of suspects who are done in by something as simple as a traffic stop. Such was the case over the weekend in Walla Walla.

Police say a Missouri man who's wanted on an outstanding warrant, and had been on the run for SEVERAL YEARS was arrested and will be extradited back to the Midwest.

31-year-old Billy W. Haynes was pulled over on South 9th Ave. near Highway 125 for a traffic violation. But his information came back that he was a fugitive from out of state. He was promptly surrounded and arrested. Police also say he was in possession of a firearm.

Although the investigation continues, Missouri officials will now have a person they've been searching for for a long long time.
