MADRAS, OR --  Three suspects are in custody after a high speed chase near Madras, Monday morning.  Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies and Oregon State Police troopers pursued a suspected stolen vehicle through the Gateway community north of Madras, reaching speeds of 70 MPH.  A JCSO deputy spotted the vehicle reported stolen out of Warm Springs and attempted a traffic stop, but the driver took off on Highway 26 north of Madras.  At one point, an OSP trooper became the lead vehicle when a passenger in the suspect vehicle shot a rifle toward the officer. 

 

Eventually, the driver lost control on the icy road and crashed into a fence.  All three inside the vehicle ran from the scene but were caught and arrested a short time later.  Taken into custody were the driver, 23-year old Colleen Kalama, 39-year old Stuart Smith and 24-year old Stefan Sutterlee, all from the Warm Springs and Madras area.
