RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Northern Nevada’s Fugitive Taskforce, assisted by the Washoe County Sherriff’s Office (WCSO), arrested Anthony Hoskins last night in Reno.

Police say Hoskins was arrested, at 2397 Patton Drive, following a brief standoff. WCSO Officers were able to convince Hoskins to peacefully surrender.

Police say Hoskins is wanted by the Alameda County Sherriff’s Office for escaping custody on Jan. 11. At the time of his escape, Hoskins was awaiting trial for multiple armed robberies. Additional outstanding arrest warrants include parole violation, robbery, and failure to appear in connection with a weapons offense.

Lionell Irving, who was with Hoskins, was taken into custody for an outstanding California probation warrant. Both individuals were booked into the Washoe County Jail pending extradition proceedings.
