BLYTHE, Calif. - Blythe Narcotics Task Force (BNET) notified Blythe Police Department at approximately 2:38 p.m. March 11 that escaped Colorado River Indian Tribe (C.R.I.T.) inmate was at a house in the 600 block of East Michigan.

Local schools in the area including Ruth Brown Elementary School was placed on lockdown while BNET and Blythe Police surrounded the house. Riverside County Sheriff deputies and U.S. Border Patrol agents also arrived on the scene to assist.

Using a loud speaker, officers ordered Anderson to come outside the home, which he did without incident.

Suspected murderer Mickey Anderson escaped from a Colorado River Indian Tribe (C.R.I.T.) detention facility March 9. C.R.I.T. held Anderson on a homicide charge and law enforcement consider him mentally unstable and dangerous.

Just after 1 a.m. March 9, Anderson and two other inmates, Joshua Mike and Aaron Drennan assaulted a C.R.I.T. detention officer and escaped from the C.R.I.T. Detention Facility in Parker. Within hours, C.R.I.T. Police Department, with the assistance of La Paz County Sheriff's Office, U.S. Border Patrol and Lake Havasu City Police Department found Mike and Drennan and returned them to custody.

After taking Anderson into custody and taking him to Blythe Police Department, the schools were released from lockdown status.

Officers turned Anderson over to C.R.I.T. Police Department and F.B.I. agents.

Congratulations to Blythe Narcotics Enforcement Task force. Thank you very much for your service, and for keeping the citizens of Blythe safe. Recently in Phoenix Arizona a Task force was involved in a somewhat similar situation with a similar type criminal. A Phoenix Police Detective lost his life, and another detective was shot and survived. The quality of life would be challenging if we did not have the the brave men & women Law Enforcement to protect us all everyday. You are heroes.
