Car chase ends near Chelan
From Jan Brincat
Chelan Sheriff’s Office

Deputies arrested a female driving a stolen car Jan. 3 north of Knapps Tunnel after she unsuccessfully attempted to cash counterfeit checks at a Wenatchee business.

When the suspect left the business at about 7 a.m., the employee got the license plate number which was from a recently stolen vehicle out of Wenatchee.

A short time later, the employee called RiverCom and advised the suspect had returned. Deputies responded to the area to find the suspect left again.

A Washington State Fish and Wildlife Officer, who overheard
the radio traffic, observed the suspect vehicle northbound on U.S. 97A, approximately 10 miles north of Wenatchee.

The Wildlife officer attempted to stop the vehicle, which had three occupants. The vehicle failed to yield and continued northbound on U.S. 97A at about 60 mph.

Deputies responded and the suspect finally yielded just north of the tunnel.

The Wenatchee resident was booked into jail on possession of stolen vehicle and driving charges. The fraud and identity theft crimes are under investigation. The other two vehicle occupants were released.
