TUMALO, OR -- A Redmond man wanted for a felony warrant was arrested Friday evening, after an hour-long manhunt in Tumalo. Deschutes County deputies assisting on a traffic stop learned 38-year-old Ryan Fischer-Salt was in a nearby bar, but he took off before they arrived. Fischer-Salt is accused of violating his parole and running from a Thursday traffic stop. 


A K-9 deputy began tracking the man around southern Tumalo as citizens reported his movements to 911. A Cascades Academy summer camp was put in lock-down during the search. After about 45 minutes, Fischer-Salt was seen crossing Highway 20 near Old Bend-Redmond Highway. As Two K-9s and a drone converged on the area, he emerged from a hillside across the river, and surrendered to deputies. 


He walked across the river and was arrested without further incident. Fischer-Salt is now being held without bail at the Deschutes County Jail. He was arrested in 2017 for multiple charges, including violating parole; in 2016, Fischer-Salt was arrested by the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement (CODE) team; and in 2013, he was accused of stealing from the Sheriff's Office shooting range.
