Released by: Sgt. Jayson Janes, Public Information Officer

Date: January 10, 2021

Driver: Glen James Carroll, 47 year old male, Redmond

Charges: Attempt to Elude Felony, Attempt to Elude Misdemeanor, Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine, Reckless Driving, and Driving while Suspended Misdemeanor.

On Saturday January 9, 2021, at approximately 8:53 AM, a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Deputy attempted a traffic stop in the area of NW 6th street and NW Quince Avenue in Redmond.  The vehicle, a black 2001 Volvo 4door, was being stopped for several traffic violations to include speeding, fail to use turn signal and expired registration. 

As the deputy initiated the stop, the Volvo took off westbound on NW Quince Avenue.  The vehicle made its way back to Highway 97 from NW Pershall Way, and started to drive southbound through Redmond on Highway 97.

 Redmond Police Officers were able to deploy spike strips in the area of Highway 97 and Evergreen Avenue.  The driver drove over the spike strips with the rear passenger side tire.  The Volvo continued southbound through Redmond.  

After leaving the city limits, the driver was driving approximately 100 MPH as the tire deflated.  The car slowed down and the tire eventually came off.  The driver then left the highway on the east side of Highway 97 across from Tomahawk Avenue, taking a BLM road.  It crossed the railroad tracks and started driving in a northeast direction through BLM land.  The driver eventually stopped and got out of the car and ran.  The Deputy was able to take him into custody after a short foot pursuit.  

The driver was identified as Glen James Carroll, 47 yo male from Redmond.  When Carroll was arrested, he was in possession of approximately one ounce of suspected methamphetamine.  There was minimal traffic on the roadways during the pursuit.  Carroll was cited and released at the scene for the above mentioned charges.

The Sheriffs Office would like to thank the Redmond Police Department for their assistance.
