Two people who fled on foot from an Oregon State Police (OSP) trooper last Thursday morning in Rainier have been positively identified but not located. The name of the male driver, who is wanted on a felony warrant, is being released and OSP is asking for the public's help to locate him.
SCOTT DAVID LAVELLE (AKA: ‘Lil Scottie'), age 19, from Longview, Washington was identified as the male driver who fled on foot with a juvenile female on July 7, 2011. LAVELLE is wanted on an outstanding felony Attempted Assault in the First Degree warrant held by Columbia County Sheriff's Office.
LAVELLE is described as a white male, 5'7", 140 lbs, with short brown hair and brown eyes. He also has a birthmark or scar on the right ear lobe with unknown tattooed letters above the mark.
The female named "Summer" was positively identified as a 17-year old from Longview, Washington. Her name is withheld because there are no pending charges in Oregon.
OSP would like to contact "Summer" related to the investigation associated with the traffic stop on July 7 at approximately 9:47 a.m. when an OSP trooper observed a possible verbal disturbance in the Shell gas station parking at Rockcrest Street and Highway 30 involving a male and female in a light blue 1987 Toyota Camry four-door displaying Washington license plates. After the trooper pulled into the parking lot to contact the two people, they both subsequently fled on foot in opposite directions leaving the car behind. LAVELLE left behind some clothing and a baseball hat, and a loaded handgun found inside the car.
Anyone with information regarding the location of SCOTT DAVID LAVELLE is asked to call 9-1-1 or OSP Northern Command Center dispatch at 800-452-7888.
