Two People In Custody After High-Speed Pursuit

October 19, 2009

 

At least two suspects are in custody this morning following Sunday’s wild high-speed pursuit with authorities in the Wenatchee area. It started at about 6 am on South Mission Street in Wenatchee and ended about 2:30 in the afternoon on the other side of jump-off ridge in the Stemilt basin. It began when police officer from East Wenatchee spotted what he believed to be a car prowl in progress. The officer gave chase when the suspects fled the scene in a jeep. The officer reported that shots were fired at him from the passenger side window. A Chelan County Sheriff’s Sgt joined the chase as it sped along the Malaga Alcoa Highway. The Deputy lost control of his car and crashed into some rocks but he was later treated for minor injuries. The car of another deputy stalled on a rough stretch of road as the chase made its way into the Stemilt Loop Road area. Several roads were closed off and residents were notified as the pursuit continued thru the Wenatchee Heights and into the Colockum. The abandoned jeep was found later on the southwest side of Jump-off ridge. Two people were detained for questioning but its reported that the driver of the vehicle was still being sought as of late Sunday afternoon.
