LA PINE, OR -- A Boise man was arrested Friday after allegedly leading Sheriff's deputies on a pursuit near La Pine. A witness reported a man was “going crazy” in the parking lot of Ed Staub and Sons, then stole a pickup and took off. 

 

A Deschutes County deputy caught up to the truck on Highway 97 but called off the chase due to public safety concerns. A short time later, a resident on West Drive reported a pickup had crashed into his gate; other witnesses said they saw a man run off. Following a brief K-9 search, 33-year-old Shawn Wood was found in a crawl space of a nearby home and arrested without incident.   
 
Investigators say it appears Wood ran out of gas and left his vehicle on Highway 31, south of La Pine, prior to stealing the truck.
