COLUMBIA — Officer Jill Schlude from the Columbia Police Department confirmed Thursday evening that Rashad Washington was still at large after running from the Columbia Police Department. Washington is wanted for cocaine distribution charges and Columbia Police do believe he is armed.
Police surrounded the construction area near Vandiver and Rangeline looking for Washington but they were unsuccessful.
A Columbia police officer spotted Washington on Fir Place and Larch Court before he ran away. The Missouri State Highway Patrol brought in a K-9 unit to assist in the investigation.
