BEND, OR -- A felon wanted for a parole violation was arrested after telling a Deschutes County Deputy he was waiting for a ride. The incident started just before 8:30 a.m., Thursday, when a Deputy approached a man standing outside the Tumalo Store.
After talking briefly with the Deputy, the man took off running. Other law enforcement responded to the area and started searching for the suspect, who was quickly identified as 36-year-old James Herrera, who had an active felony warrant by the Oregon State Parole Board.
At about 10 a.m., Herrera was taken into custody during a traffic stop near the Tumalo State Park campground. The driver was also arrested. Deputies and Detectives say they found 29-year-old Keiri Hall with over an ounce of methamphetamine.
