March 14, 2013

(Questions regarding the names of persons arrested should be directed to Marion County Sheriff's Office)

Two people are in custody Thursday evening along Interstate 5 in the Tualatin area after an attempt to elude Oregon State Police (OSP) and Marion County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) in a stolen vehicle northbound on Interstate 5. The two Hispanic males were turned over to MCSO deputies for further investigation and consideration of charges.
On March 14, 2013 at approximately 6:22 p.m., OSP was notified that a stolen Honda Accord four-door was attempting to elude MCSO northbound on Interstate 5 at a high rate of speed from the Salem area. OSP troopers from Salem and Portland assumed lead positions near Woodburn and kept the vehicle in sight. As it traveled northbound a Tualatin police sergeant successfully deploy spike strips deflating both left side tires.
At approximately 6:40 p.m., the eluding Honda stopped at the Nyberg Road off ramp in the Tualatin area where both occupants were taken into custody without incident.
