At 08:25 am, on August 18 our University Place deputies responded to a call of a stolen vehicle at the Cemetery at 9200 Chambers Creek Way. As the Sergeant was getting close a Lakewood and Steilacoom Officer had arrived as the vehicle started to leave. The Sergeant was able to pull over and deploy his stop sticks to wait for the stolen vehicle.
The spike deployment was perfect and got all 4 tires flat, unfortunately the suspects took off and we had to terminate our pursuit. Officers later found the vehicle unoccupied and still running at 7500 Bridgeport Way.
Other Deputies surrounded the nearby area and started to check for the juveniles.
One deputy could see two of the suspects down in a creek bed. He chose a very interesting way to get them to comply.
Watch to see how we got all 4 suspects in custody! Awesome job and an A+ for creativity in figuring out a way to get these juvenile car thieves to surrender!
