Loose llama evades county’s sheriff deputies

Yakima County Sheriff deputies were summoned to hunt for a llama reported as running loose near the intersection of Division Road and Yakima Valley Highway near Grandview this past Saturday night. Deputies were unable to locate the animal.

Last Friday afternoon deputies investigated a theft report from near the intersection of Chafee and Wade roads near Sunnyside. A PVC pipe had been damaged and sprinkler heads were stolen. The incident is under investigation.

Since last Friday morning deputies have also responded to nine traffic problems, three reports of suspicious activity, three animal problems, two automatic alarms, an emergency medical call and a civil matter.

In that time deputies also made an arrest in a DUI case, provided assistance to a citizen and provided two agency assists.
