REDMOND, OR -- A man wanted for drug possession and violating parole allegedly led Deschutes County Sheriff’s deputies on a pursuit, Wednesday night. An officer spotted a stolen Ford Focus at about 8:20 p.m. in northwest Redmond.

 

While the deputy waited for backup, a man got into the car and drove off. The deputy initiated a traffic stop but the car stopped in a nearby driveway and the driver – recognized as 36-year-old Ryan Fischer-Salt - ran from the scene. 

 
As units set up a perimeter, another deputy spotted a pickup without working tail lights. That vehicle led police on a 12-mile chase topping speeds of 80 miles per hour. 
 
The pickup ran over police spike strips on Cline Falls Highway, forcing it to come to a stop. Fischer-Salt got out of the vehicle and again ran. He was taken into custody with the help of a Redmond K-9 unit and faces a long list of charges.
