BEND, OR -- A Bend man is wanted in connection with a Saturday evening police chase in southwest Bend. A Deschutes County Sheriff's Deputy tried to pull over a car for running the stop sign at Baker and Brookswood Blvd, just before 6 p.m. The car took off, leading the deputy on a short pursuit.


The driver stopped the vehicle near Cultus Drive and Ponderosa and ran. Despite a search involving Oregon State Police, Bend Police and a K9 unit, he wasn’t found. The passenger, 47-year-old Chase Swafford, stayed with the car and was arrested for an outstanding warrant.


The suspect was later identified as 34-year-old Daniel James Wallace (pictured). He's expected to face charges including Attempt to Elude and Reckless Driving. 


Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at 541-693-6911.
