PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Authorities arrested a wanted man Tuesday morning after he crashed a car that may have been connected to a series of burglaries, officials say.
Police say the man – who remains unnamed – fled from the car after it crashed near Southeast 82nd Avenue and Flavel Street, leading to a widespread search with drones and K9 units in the area.
The Portland Police Bureau says they found the man around 11:20 a.m. and apprehended him. He is currently in custody with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office, which has yet to release further information.
Earlier that morning, the bureau say they received a tip from CCSO saying the car had been eluding deputies. When officers found the crashed car around 6:05 a.m., a woman with non-life-threatening injuries was found inside.
Authorities brought the woman, also unnamed, to a local hospital as the search began.
