REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond man is accused of driving a pickup stolen from Gresham, then trying to hide from law enforcement. A Deschutes County deputy tried to stop 46-year-old Dean Morkert (left) for a traffic violation, Sunday afternoon. Morkert avoided the stop and allegedly tried to hide the vehicle in an alley near 4th and Birch in Redmond. He ran when spotted by the deputy. 

 

His passenger, 48-year-old Amber Higbee, was cited at the scene. Morkert was later seen near Higbee's home on North Canal Blvd. After numerous attempts to get him to come out, a K9 unit barked to announce his presence, and deputies threatened to send the dog in to search the house.
 
Garrett Leeper (right) - wanted for a probation violation for car theft - exited the home first; Morkert followed.  Both were arrested without incident.
