The trial of a former Colville police officer accused of child rape ended in a deadlock on May 7.
Jurors in a Chelan County courtroom could not agree whether the allegations levied against Scott Arms, 44, were enough to convict him of Rape of a Child in the First Degree.
According to superior court records, there were no witnesses or DNA evidence to the supposed crime that took place on Jan. 19, 2014 in the girlâs home in Wenatchee.

Indians in 2nd
Colville High (7-3, 6-2) split a pair of Northeast A League boyâs soccer match-ups last week. The Indians started the week with a 3-1 loss at Newport and ended the week with an easy 8-1 rout of overmatched Deer Park on the CHS pitch last Thursday afternoon.
The loss to Newport marked the second time the Indians have lost to the Grizzlies in three meetings this spring.
The Jenkins High softball team may be getting hot at just the right time, rolling off four straight victories last week with wins over Newport, Cusick and Freeman. The Cougars are 10-6 overall and 5-6 in Northeast A League play, good for fifth place with only three league games remaining in the regular season.
Head coach Tom Skok was hoping his Cougars would catch a hot streak before the postseason and it looks like they have done that.
