CAPTURED: Linza Black: High-Violent Offender nicknamed ‘Mississippi’ arrested in Kennewick

CAPTURED — April 29, 2018

Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers says tips led Kennewick Police to Linza Black on Saturday. He was arrested without incident and booked into jail

WANTED BY DOC IN TRI-CITIES —
Meet ‘Mississippi.’

Department of Corrections officers say that’s the nickname of High-Violent Offender, Linza Black.

Officers say he grew up in Mississippi, but is now living a life of crime in the Tri-Cities.

He’s wanted by the Department of Corrections for breaking probation on a violent robbery conviction, where Black and a bunch of other guys surrounded a man with knives and brass knuckles, then stole the victim’s truck that had two firearms inside that were never recovered.

DOC officers believe he’s armed — and they’re backed up by a recently posted Facebook photo of Mississippi showing off a loaded rifle. The magazine is clear, so you can see the bullets inside it.

He’s 22 years old, 5’11” and weighs 175 pounds.

DOC officers say he has ties to Prosser and Richland.
