PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Wednesday morning just after 1:10 a.m.
Spokane Valley Sheriff's deputies arrested the two occupants of a stolen vehicle
after the driver rammed a Spokane Valley patrol car ending a pursuit in the area
of Pines and Broadway in the Spokane Valley.
Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy
Juan Rodriguez observed a 2002 Ford Explorer in the area of Argonne and
Mission. He checked the vehicle's license plate and confirmed the vehicle was
reported stolen on 12/31/12.
He turned in behind the vehicle and followed it
southbound on Argonne as he waited for additional units to assist. When
additional deputies arrived, he attempted to stop the vehicle on Argonne north
of Sprague but the driver immediately accelerated.
With the roads almost completely
void of other vehicles, the driver continued to try and evade the deputies
reaching speeds of 60 to 80 mph during the pursuit. When the vehicle turned
east on Broadway from Pines, Deputy Rodriguez attempted a successful Pursuit
Intervention Technique (PIT) which caused the vehicle to spin and stop facing
west on Broadway. Deputy Seth Berrow, who was just behind Deputy Rodriguez,
turned onto Broadway and slowed almost to a stop.
Both deputies planned to
position their vehicles to block any escape but the suspect accelerated again
and rammed the front of Deputy Berrow's fully marked patrol car. Deputy
Rodriguez pulled in behind the suspect's vehicle that now appeared to be stuck
on the bumper and hood area of Deputy Burrow's vehicle.
The two male occupants were taken
into custody without further incident.
The driver, identified as
21-year-old Jordy S. DeBoer was charged with Attempting to Elude a Peace
Officer, Assault 1st Degree, Possession of a
Controlled Substance-Methamphetamine and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, all
felonies. The passenger, identified as 19-year-old Gary G. Walker was arrested
for an outstanding misdemeanor warrant for Theft 3rd.
Both were transported and booked
into the Spokane County Jail for the noted charges.
Deputy Berrow appeared to be sore
after the collision but thankfully was not injured more severely.

August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.>>
