A man with elaborate Nazi tattoos was arrested Saturday afternoon after authorities found three people dead inside a Clark County home.

Authorities had launched a broad search for Brent Luyster, saying he was believed to be armed and extremely dangerous. They eventually found him in a vehicle on Ocean Beach Highway, where he was arrested without incident by Cowlitz County deputies and state troopers, authorities said.

Sgt. Fred Neiman said in a bulletin that he appreciated the attention brought to the case, along with “tips and information resulting in the apprehension of the suspect.”

Along with the three people found dead at the home near Woodland, authorities said a woman also suffered a gunshot wound to the face. She managed to drive herself to a convenience store Friday night, according to authorities.

The Columbian reported that Luyster was set to go on trial Monday on charges that he pistol-whipped his ex-girlfriend in Longview. Luyster pleaded not guilty in May to charges of assault, harassment and illegal firearm possession.
