Suspect pursuit lasts more than 40 minutes; covers 50 miles

SPOKANE, Wash.- Washington State Patrol troopers say a suspect pursuit started at Argonne and I-90 and ended in north Spokane County, with a detour through Airway Heights. According to a WSP sergeant, the pursuit started just after midnight Wednesday morning when a WSP trooper tried to stop a motorcyclist for speeding.

The motorcyclist refused to pull over and troopers immediately began a pursuit. The suspect drove west on I-90 and exited at the Highway 2 turnoff. He drove into Airway Heights and headed north on Hayford Road. He then went on Government Way, found his way to Alberta, and then drove east on Francis.

WSP troopers stayed with the suspect throughout this tour of Spokane County. A trooper says because of the low speeds and light traffic, they did not feel the need to terminate the pursuit.

At Market and Central, in northeast Spokane, the suspect ditched his motorcycle and continued on foot. Washington State Patrol troopers contacted Spokane Police Officers for a K-9 track, but it ended up not being necessary.

After more than 40 minutes and over the course of about 50 total miles, troopers were finally able to apprehend the suspect. He was found with meth on his person and troopers say a firearm was found near his motorcycle. They believe it fell off his person when he ditched his ride.

Troopers say multiple law enforcement agencies contributed to this arrest: WSP, SPD, and Spokane County Sheriff's units. The suspect is a white male in his 30's. He will be charged with attempting to elude officers, possession of a firearm, and felony possession of a controlled substance.
