REDMOND, OR -- Redmond police are looking for a suspect who stole a car early Friday morning. Officers located the stolen Nissan Altima near SW 31st and Obsidian Avenue, within an hour of taking the initial report.
They attempted to stop the driver but he took off, resulting in a pursuit onto the Old Bend Redmond Highway. The man eventually crashed the car into a power pole and took off on foot. A K-9 unit was not able to locate him, but evidence was collected at the scene that could help identify the suspect.
In a separate case, officers arrested 23-year-old Brian Wynn (pictured), also Friday morning. He's accused of stealing a Honda Civic, at about 7:30 a.m. About 15 minutes later, police conducted a high-risk traffic stop near Umatilla Park and took him into custody without incident.
