A Prineville man led police on a 25-minute high-speed chase just before 1a.m. Saturday morning. A Crook County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop the vehicle on Highway 26 between Prineville and Madras, but the vehicle fled, reaching speeds over 100 mph. Units from Oregon State Police, and Prineville joined the chase. The suspect nearly collided with the pursuing police cars several times. Joseph Furtado, 24, was eventually apprehended at Milepost 14 on Northwest O’Neil Highway after hitting two sets of spike stripes. He was arrested on various traffic charges, including DUII.
