Today, April 22, at 2:30 p.m., the King County Sheriff’s Department requested the assistance of the Snoqualmie Police Department in the pursuit of a stolen U-Haul truck that was failing to yield and pull over.
The truck was seen in the Lake Alice neighborhood of Fall City and seemed suspicious. Upon receiving a call to 911, Sheriff’s Deputies located the vehicle in Fall City and attempted to pull it over. It fled on State Route 202 toward Snoqualmie.
When the U-Haul entered Snoqualmie, Snoqualmie Police Officers attempted to use tire deflation devices to disable the vehicle. The driver went around the devices and side-swiped two vehicles. There were no injuries. A driver in another vehicle attempted to ram the U-Haul unsuccessfully.
Due to tire damage on the U-Haul, the driver and a second occupant stopped the truck and fled on foot. Officers arrested them without incident.The two occupants were an adult male and adult female from Federal Way. The male was booked on several counts of hit and run, theft of a motor vehicle, eluding police officers, and unlawful imprisonment. The female was released at the scene.
