PRINEVILLE, OR -- A high-speed chase that started in Prineville, came to a sudden stop on Highway 26, yesterday morning.  Police initially tried to stop 35-year old Marlin Dickerson after a witness told police he had stolen a car from the Bank of The Cascades parking lot in downtown Prineville.  Dickerson pulled over in front of Ochoco School and officers drew their weapons as he got out of the car.

 

Police say he then jumped back into the car and took off toward Madras.  As speeds reached 95 MPH on Highway 26, Oregon State Police and Jefferson County deputies threw out spike strips in the roadway.  After his tires deflated, Dickerson was taken into custody without incident.  He now faces a list of charges, including attempting to elude, driving while suspended, and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
