PRINEVILLE, OR -- Prineville Police arrested the passenger involved in a Tuesday morning pursuit, but say the driver got away. An officer tried to pull over 23-year-old Jeremy Hartman-Steele (left), at about 9:45 a.m., after recognizing he and the 20-year-old passenger as persons of interest in ongoing cases. Both also have outstanding warrants.
After a brief pursuit, the car stopped on SE Juniper Canyon Road and both suspects ran toward a wooded area. The passenger, Ashley Greene-Hurt (right) was
apprehended and arrested. A Redmond PD K9 unit assisted in the search for Hartman-Steele but he wasn't found.
Police later determined the vehicle had been reported stolen out of Warm Springs. Hartman-Steele has several outstanding local charges as well as four state-wide felony arrest warrants. Anyone with information on his location is asked to call Prineville Police.
