Three Arrested After Pursuit

Three subjects are in the Kittitas County Corrections Facility following an early morning pursuit. A Trooper working traffic enforcement on I-90 near Kittitas observed a vehicle speeding. The Trooper stopped the vehicle, and shortly after stopping the vehicle fled eastbound. The Trooper terminated the pursuit prior to the Vantage Bridge for safety reasons. The vehicle took the Vantage exit where it ran out of gas. Three subjects fled on foot. One subject later returned and was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant for their arrest. The driver and a passenger were still outstanding.

Later in the morning with the assistance of Kittitas County Sheriffs Deputies, the subjects were observed walking across the Vantage Bridge. A Trooper in the area located the subjects and placed them both in custody. Both subjects had felony warrants for their arrests. All three have been booked into jail for the warrants and further charges are expected
