A 25-year-old male suspect was taken into custody for commercial burglary, possession of a stolen vehicle and other property, and for failure to yield to emergency vehicles after a pursuit on SR 410 through Enumclaw, Buckley, and Bonney Lake.

On August 11, 2017 at 1:30 a.m. the Enumclaw Police Communications Center received a report of a possible prowler to a business in the 200 block of Roosevelt Av in Enumclaw. Police units were dispatched.

An arriving police unit observed a male suspect exiting the business carrying property. The suspect ran to an SUV parked by the business and took off. Police units attempted to stop the SUV with their lights and sirens. The suspect fled westbound on SR 410.

The suspect continued to flee at high rates of speed through Buckley. Police communications coordinated the pursuit as the fleeing SUV entered Bonney Lake. A Bonney Lake police officer was able to successfully deploy a spike strip which was able to deflate at least one of the suspect tires.

The suspect continued fleeing down Eli Hill and on several occasions appeared to be trying to ram or collide with the pursuing police units.

As the speed of the suspect vehicle slowed with the deterioration of the tire, an Enumclaw Police Sergeant moved in and executed a Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT) maneuver on the suspect SUV.

As the suspect was attempting to recover from the PIT maneuver he rammed head-on into a Pierce County Sherriff’s deputy vehicle who was in a blocking position. The suspect exited the SUV and began fleeing on foot at which time an Enumclaw Police Officer was able to catch up to him and deploy his X2 Taser device. The suspect was then taken into custody without incident.

The suspect was transported to St Elizabeth Hospital in Enumclaw for a checkup then booked into the Enumclaw City Jail.

No injuries were reported by the police or sheriff deputies involved. Pierce County Deputies are investigating the collision damage and will be working with Enumclaw officers and detectives on the filing of charges on the suspect.

The suspect SUV had been listed as stolen from Pennsylvania and the plates were stolen from Everett. The suspect had multiple warrants at the time of arrest.
