Bend Police get a lucky break. Tuesday, at Third Street and Murphy Road,  police were searching for a theft suspect and they recognized a car involved in multiple retail thefts in Bend and Redmond.  They stopped the car, but when approached, the driver sped off north on Parrell Road.  The car stopped on Badger Road, a dead end street.  The driver, Jared Reed, 34, a transient, was taken into custody after a brief foot pursuit.  The passenger, Angela Robinson, 26,  also a transient, was also taken into custody after finding her hidden in the yard of a nearby home. They are both lodged in the Deschutes County Jail on multiple charges including attempt to elude, reckless driving, possession of methamphetamine and warrant violations.
