A Monday night boat patrol on the Columbia River east of The Dalles netted more than just boating and fishing violations.
Oregon State Police Fish and Wildlife, teaming up with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, arrested four people on outstanding arrest warrants from Oregon and Washington.
Shortly before 10 p.m., officers contacted a boat with four occupants near Miller Island in Sherman County operating without safety lighting.
They discovered three of the four fishermen were wanted on outstanding arrest warrants.
Matthew L. Jim, 38, and Colette R. Patrick, 33, both of Toppenish, Wash., were arrested on failure to appear warrants from Wasco County. Patrick also had a probation violation warrant. The third person, whose name was unavailable, had an outstanding Washington warrant.
Shortly before midnight, the officers contacted another boat without required lighting and a fourth unidentified subject was arrested on a Washington failure to appear warrant on driving under the influence.
