REDMOND, OR -- A Bend woman is accused of running from police Friday night, after a Deschutes County Deputy pulled her over for driving while suspended. He contacted 46-year-old Christa Curtis in the Redmond Safeway parking lot, where she agreed to a search of her vehicle.
After the deputy found what appeared to be meth, an assisting Redmond officer contacted her probation officer. When Curtis learned she had violated her probation and would be subject to a "detainer," she took off, driving over landscaping in the parking lot and south on Highway 97. The pursuit was called off at the south end of Redmond due to slick road conditions.
Curtis was found asleep in her vehicle east of Bend, at about 2 a.m. Saturday. She was arrested without incident and faces a number of charges.
