PRINEVILLE, OR -- A 22-year-old Madras man faces numerous charges following pursuit spanning two counties. Crook County deputies were notified Friday afternoon that Jefferson County deputies had been chasing a red Ford F150 on Highway 26. The pursuit was terminated near mile post 13, as they traveled toward Crook County.


CCSO deputies responded and found the pickup abandoned on NW Gerke Road near NW Ryegrass Road, about eight miles northwest of Prineville. Oregon State Police, JCSO, CCSO and Prineville Police began searching the area for the driver, later identified as 22-year-old Jose Gonzalez Parra. 


Gonzalez was located south of the truck on the side of the hill. He allegedly attempted to hide in tree cover when members of the search team found and arrested him. He was transported to the Jefferson County Jail on multiple charges, including Attempt to Elude and Reckless Driving.
