15-Year-Old On Motorcycle Leads Police On High Speed Chase In Grant County

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: On August 25th at 1:40 pm Grant County Sheriff's deputies along with the Washington State Patrol, Quincy & Ephrata Police officers, and help from a Department of Justice Drug Enforcement aerial reconnaissance helicopter assisted in arresting a 15-year juvenile male for eluding at high speeds on a motorcycle.

Grant County Sheriff's sergeant, Sergeant Ken Jones, was attempting to stop a motorcycle for speed 30 miles per hour above the posted speed of 50 miles per hour on Martin Road NW, 5-miles northeast of Quincy, Washington.

The 15-year old male failed to yield to the sergeant and began a pursuit that reached speeds of 120 miles per hour on many rural Grant County roads.  Several officers from surrounding areas assisted in the pursuit. 

The 15-year old motorcyclist ended up dumping his motorcycle in a field with tall grass and brush. Fortunately the aerial reconnaissance by the DEA helicopter spotted the juvenile laying flat among the brush and directed officers to where he was attempting to secret himself. He was taken into custody and booked into juvenile detention for eluding a police officer. 

The spotter for the DEA is a nationally recognized observer who has been working with the DEA for the past several weeks in eastern Washington and is a member of the Grant County Sheriff's Office. (Because of what the deputy does, we ask that his name not be given)

    KHQ.COM - An average house cat weighs between 7-10 pounds but one Spokane woman has a cat whose size is almost unheard of. Out of the corner of your eye, Ollie might be mistaken for a dog... he's that big! Not your normal house cat, Ollie is a Savannah cat, a hybrid breed that's a cross between a serval cat and a domestic cat. So while it's not surprising that he's bigger than a domestic cat, his size is still shocking.
