REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond man faces multiple charges involving one vehicle reported stolen from Portland, and another involved in a police chase. 

 

At about 12:45 a.m. Friday, Deschutes County deputies conducted a traffic stop on a Ford Explorer in the parking lot of the Redmond Walmart; the vehicle was missing a license plate. During the stop, deputies discovered the Explorer was reported stolen from Portland in November. The investigation led them to 30-year-old Scott Wilson.

 

At around 2:30 a.m., deputies discovered Wilson driving a BMW sedan on NW Maple Ave. near 35th. He allegedly fled the scene and law enforcement attempted used spike strips to try to immobilize the vehicle. A brief low-speed pursuit ensued, through a northwest Redmond neighborhood, culminating in Wilson's vehicle becoming disabled behind the Catholic Church at 19th and Maple. Authorities say Wilson then ran and hid on church property until he was found by a Redmond Police K9 unit.

 

Wilson was taken into custody without incident. He's expected to be charged with Possession of  a Stolen Vehicle, Attempting to Elude (in a vehicle and on foot), Driving with a Suspended License, Reckless Driving and a Felony Parol Violation.
