Standoff with empty motor home closed off I-205 on Saturday

The two-and-a-half-hour standoff that shut down Interstate 205 on Saturday had an anticlimactic ending when SWAT members entered a stolen motor home only to find it empty.

Police stopped a motor home near Vancouver at about 3 p.m. and discovered the vehicle had been stolen, Washington State Patrol spokesman Will Finn said. The driver fled, but officers thought they saw someone moving inside the motor home. They called for anyone to come out, but no one did.

Officers and Vancouver SWAT members closed both northbound and southbound lanes of the highway while they continued to call for anyone inside the vehicle to come out.

Finally, at about 5:30 p.m., SWAT members entered the motor home, only to find it empty.

Even if it was a false alarm, Finn said the standoff was a success because no one was injured.

"I know a lot of folks were hampered. We know this was an inconvenience for them and we appreciate their patience," he said. "Sometimes those decisions have to be made for the safety of the public and of officers."
