Officers continued to pursue the stolen vehicle south on Auburn Way South toward Muckleshoot Casino.  According to APD Commander Mike Hirman, the pursuit was terminated when speeds reached 60-80mph.  APD notified King County Sherrif’s Office, requesting assistance in the search and apprehension of the suspect vehicle.


The stolen vehicle continued on Auburn Way S toward Enumclaw, but turned back near 3300 Auburn Way S.  Shortly after turning around the suspects lost control of the vehicle, crashed striking a retaining wall.

“The two suspects were taken into custody. [There are] unknown minor injuries to the female driver. We are going to have the officer driving the vehicle from the head-on [crash] checked out as a precaution,” said Hirman.
