On Thursday, a deputy with the Pacific County Drug Task Force saw a 38 year old Cosmopolis man, well known to police, driving a vehicle in the Raymond area. The deputy was aware that the man had an outstanding Department of Corrections Felony warrant for his arrest. The deputy also knew that his license was suspended. The deputy relayed the information to other officers in the area.
A Pacific County Sheriff’s Deputy attempted to stop the vehicle driving just north of Raymond on State Route 101. The vehicle fled from the deputy and other officers at high speeds before crossing into Grays Harbor. Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s deputies joined in the pursuit as the suspect vehicle continued to flee onto a logging road in North River.
Eventually the vehicle was stopped and the driver was taken into custody without further incident before being transported to the Pacific County Jail and booked on charges of Felony Attempting to Elude Police Vehicles, Driving While License Suspended and for the Felony Department of Corrections Warrant.
Agencies involved with the pursuit were the Pacific County Sheriff’s Office, the Raymond Police Department, the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Natural Resources Police.
