White Center Crime Watch: What that weekend pursuit, search were about

Several WCN readers asked us over the weekend about what appeared to be a pursuit and/or search in the White Center area. Here’s what we found out today from King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West:

On Saturday night around 11:20 pm in the area of SW106th St and 1st Ave SW a small red truck that sped by one of our deputies. The driver also ran a stop sign. The deputy initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle near S. 108th and 1 Ave S. The vehicle stopped and it appeared as though the driver ordered the female passenger out of the car. The driver then fled in the vehicle as the deputy attempted to stop him again. The vehicle went west on S 108th and then turned south onto 1 Ave SW. When the vehicle turned onto 1 Ave SW there were some people standing next to a vehicle in the roadway. The suspect narrowly missed the vehicle and people. The deputy had to slow to avoid striking the people or vehicle in the roadway. The deputy could see the vehicle ahead making a westbound turn onto SW1 10th. The deputy lost the vehicle.

Shortly thereafter, another deputy found the vehicle crashed into a fence trying to pull into a driveway near the 10600 block of 3rd ave SW. The driver fled on foot. A K-9 track of the area was unsuccessful.

The truck had been reported stolen out of Seattle on May 13th. No arrests have been made yet.
