REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Police arrested a man wanted for a warrant out of Clackamas county, following an early morning pursuit. An officer spotted a Toyota Corolla with a stolen license plate, near NE 9th and Hemlock. When attempting a traffic stop at about 4:20 a.m., the car sped onto northbound Highway 97.
Police say the chase continued through the Tetherow area towards Eagle Crest. But, pursuing officers lost the car near 74th and SW Eagle Dr. A short time later, a resident reported an unoccupied vehicle off the roadway, with an open door and running engine.
A K-9 unit eventually located 28-year-old Kendall Hickman inside a barn a few hundred yards away from the car. The Redmond man was taken into custody without incident. He's charged with Felony Elude, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, Driving While Suspended and an out of county warrant.
When officers recovered the stolen plates from the car, they learned the Toyota was recently reported stolen from the Redmond area.
