BEND, OR -- A Sunday evening pursuit led to the arrest of a wanted Bend man. A deputy attempted to pull over a car for a registration violation on Deschutes Market Road at about 6 p.m. But, the suspect took off at speeds of 95 miles per hour, swerving around oncoming traffic. The deputy called off the chase due to the risk to the public.
A citizen later reported the vehicle sped through a stop sign at Butler Market and Hamehook, and Forest Service officers in an unmarked vehicle spotted him pull into a driveway. Deputies established a perimeter and a police K9 tracked the suspect, who was eventually found hiding on the roof of a house on Butler Market Road. They eventually took 31-year-old Andrew Johnston into custody without further incident.
