REDMOND, OR -- Despite help from multiple agencies, a driver that led law enforcement on a pursuit northwest of Redmond, Friday morning, was able to evade capture. According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies caught up with a 2001 Lexus with Washington plates just before 9 a.m., near Helmholtz and Wickiup. They say it was the same vehicle involved in a pursuit with Redmond Police, a few minutes earlier, when an officer tried to conduct a traffic stop. 


Deputies say during their pursuit, the suspect vehicle reached speeds of 90 miles per hour, going off-road at one point, near NW Easton Court. Near 62nd and Griffith, the driver ran from the car. Several Sheriff's units, as well as Redmond PD, Bend PD and State Police responded and set up a perimeter. But, after a three-hour search, the man wasn't found.
