Walla Walla sheriff’s personal car stolen

The Associated Press

WALLA WALLA — Police say a man who took a car at a fast-food restaurant in Walla Walla tried to get away in the personal Jeep belonging to Walla Walla County Sheriff John Turner.

The Union-Bulletin reports Turner had pulled over and got out Wednesday to talk with an off-duty Fish and Game officer.

They immediately gave chase in the game officer’s car. They caught up with the Jeep three blocks away in a bank parking lot where the 23-year-old suspect was arrested.
