BEND, OR -- Two people were arrested Saturday night, following a brief car chase and ground search on the south end of Bend. A Deschutes County deputy attempted to pull over an SUV just before 8 p.m., on suspicion of DUII, but the driver accelerated. After about a half mile, the chase was discontinued due to risk to the public.
The suspect vehicle was later found parked in a driveway on Borden Road. Police established a perimeter and brought in a K-9 unit to help with the search.
The driver, 31-year-old Andrew Folk, and his passenger, 51-year-old Michele Wade, were located in the backyard and arrested. A firearm was recovered from the scene. The pair allegedly attempted to break into the home through a window; no one was home at the time.
