The Pima County Sheriff's Department assisted in the arrest of a cold case suspect sought by the Redlands Police Department.

Redlands officials coordinated with the sheriff's department to arrange today's arrest at Morrison's residence in the 8900 block of E. Old Spanish Trail around 8:20 a.m., according to a news release.

Morrison was booked into the Pima County Jail with a bond set at $1 million. Morrison will be back in court September 17th.
