On Thursday, 10/11/18, at approximately 0235 hours, a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Deputy began to assist Bend Police Officers on a traffic stop of a

2000 Volkswagon Jetta, relating to traffic violations observed in the City of Bend.  When the Bend officers attempted a traffic stop, the suspect vehicle eluded by failing to yield and speeding away.  The officers did not initiate pursuit until the Deschutes County deputy was able to get in position behind the vehicle.  The deputy observed additional traffic violations including speed in excess of 90mph while westbound on Knott Road heading toward Deschutes River Woods. 


The deputy continued pursuit into Deschutes River Woods at speeds between 25-65 mph.  The deputy chased the suspect on Baker Road to the end of Riverwoods Drive, where the road ends, turned around, and chased the vehicle back out to the highway on the same route.  The suspect then turned southbound on Highway 97 after a failed attempt to spike strip the vehicle was attempted near the Deschutes Riverwoods Store. 


Deputies continued chase on Highway 97 at speeds in excess of 105 mph to just south of the Cottonwood Road exit when additional deputies, assisted by Sunriver Police Department, were able to successfully spikestrip the vehicle causing the tires to gradually deflate bringing the car to a stop. 


Deputies were able to take both suspects into custody without further incident.  During the investigation, it was determined both suspects had warrants for their arrest.
