OMAK – A pair of Western Washington men suspected of burglary and theft were arrested following a high-speed pursuit through the city Friday afternoon.
The unlicensed driver of a suspect pickup truck, a 17-year-old from Kent, and passenger Steven L. Pendley, 22, of Auburn, were each arrested on felony warrants.
The juvenile’s name had not been released as of Friday afternoon.
A warrant was being executed Friday afternoon on the impounded pickup truck, which may contain stolen property, Okanogan County Undersheriff Joe Somday said Friday.
The Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office was notified Nov. 15 of a burglary at Teaoin Jones’ residence near Riverside, Somday said.
Jones called the Sheriff’s Office about suspects selling items stolen from her residence to a friend in East Omak.
A license number was obtained, he said. Around 1:05 p.m., the suspects were back allegedly trying to sell stolen property.
When deputies responded along with Omak police, a pursuit ensued through Omak streets, Somday said. The suspects stopped near Shumway and Robinson Canyon.
More about the pursuit and arrest will be published in the Wednesday, Nov. 21, issued of The Chronicle.
