North Bend burglary results in high-speed chase on I-90, 2 arrests

The Associated Press

NORTH BEND – A North Bend-area burglary that netted a .357 magnum handgun and a checkbook led to one quick arrest in Snoqualmie and a high-speed escape attempt along Interstate 90 before a second person surrendered.

King County sheriff’s Sgt. Cindi West says the elderly victims reported Tuesday’s burglary to officers and quickly alerted their bank. While a sergeant was still at the home, the bank advised that someone was trying to cash a stolen check at a Snoqualmie grocery store. Police there quickly arrested a woman with the stolen checkbook but a male accomplice took off in a car when officers tried to stop him.

The fleeing driver avoided spike strips and raced west along I-90 at speeds of 90 mph before finally pulling over on Interstate 405. The sheriff’s helicopter helped track the speeding car.

West says two Renton residents were booked into jail for investigation of burglary, theft, forgery and gun theft.
