(Bridgeport, WA) On Wednesday July 25th, at approximately 11:40 PM a Douglas County Deputy spotted a recklessly driven vehicle traveling on Hwy. 173 near Bridgeport.  The Deputy caught up with the vehicle on 14th Street and Foster Avenue.  When the Deputy pulled up behind the car, it suddenly stopped.  The driver exited the vehicle leaving it in gear, and fled. 

The Deputy was able to get to the rolling pickup and stop it before there was any damage or injury.  The Deputy contacted the registered owner and learned that the vehicle had been stolen that night.  Between the time of the incident and Thursday July 26th, at least eight Bridgeport residents contacted the Sheriff’s Office to report vehicle prowls.  In every case, the thief had entered and ransacked the car.  Items such as cameras, tools, purses, and cash were stolen.   

On Thursday July 26th, the Deputy’s Sergeant reviewed the video footage from the patrol car camera.  He immediately recognized the suspect who ran from the stolen pickup as a 15 year old male from Bridgeport.  The Sergeant was unable to find the male and notified Douglas County Juvenile Probation Officers.  Later in the day the Juvenile Officers located the suspect at his house and brought him to the Sheriff’s Office.  Statements from the suspect and evidence recovered by the investigators implicated the suspect in the series of crimes.  He was arrested on suspicion of Motor Vehicle Theft, Vehicle Prowl in the 1st degree, Malicious Mischief 2nd degree, Reckless Endangerment, 8 counts of Vehicle Prowl in the 2nd degree, Theft 2nd, Theft 3rd, and Driving Without a Valid Operator’s License. 

The suspect was booked at the Chelan County Juvenile Detention Center without incident.
