OMAK — An Omak robbery suspect picked a bad time to try to escape authorities by jumping into the Okanogan River.

“Tribal police had a boat in the river just downstream from where he jumped in,” said Sgt. Jeff Koplin with the Omak Police Department. “He basically floated down and they plucked him out of the water.”

The Colville tribal boat was in the river to assist people practicing for the Omak Stampede and World Famous Suicide Race.
