BEND, OR -- Bend Police say a victim interrupted a car prowler, early Thursday morning, leading to the arrest of a 29-year-old Redmond man. The victim called 911 at about 2 a.m. to report a man was sitting in the driver’s seat of his car, near the Old Mill, trying to steal it.
The suspect took off on foot, but was caught by responding officers as he ran through a nearby business. Quinn Snider faces several charges, including attempted theft of a vehicle.
During the investigation, police discovered two vehicles with significant ignition column damage, and electronics were taken out of one. They say they recovered the stolen items, and found evidence linking Snider to the case.
