Montesano man jailed after high speed chase on stolen motorcycle

A tip led police on a high speed motorcycle chase, the wreck of a Montesano Police vehicle, and K9 track to arrest a Montesano man Tuesday night. Grays Harbor County Undersheriff David Pimentel tells us around 10:45 last night detectives learned that a black motorcycle stolen from Federal Way would be traveling down Central Park Drive toward Montesano, where it was going to be sold. A few minutes later Deputy Tracey Gay spotted the motorcycle, where it took off at a high rate of speed down Central Park Drive to Devonshire road, where it dodged a Montesano PD road block and headed toward Pioneer, this is where the Montesano Police SUV slid off the road, as we reported earlier this morning. The motorcycle headed to main street, then onto State Route 12 where it drove Westbound on the Eastbound lanes at speeds of 100 MPH and turned at Devonshire, again heading Northbound – this time striking an Ecology block on the West Wynoochee. Pimentel said the driver fled on foot, and was tracked by K9 Maxx shortly after. A 28 year old Montesano man was taken into custody, treated at the hospital for injuries, and then booked into Grays Harbor County Jail for Possession of Stolen Property in the First Degree, and Felony Eluding.

Central Park fire displaces family of 5, no injuries

CENTRAL PARK, Wash. - A family of 5 was displaced by a house fire in Central Park this morning. Public Information Officer Brian Baldwin tells us they arrived just before 5 to the 900 block of Garden road off of Central Park Drive "We got on scene, they had a small fire that then erupted into the rest of the residence."
A cause of the fire is under investigation, Baldwin said it spread quick "We were actually on the scene for about 30 minutes, and then it moved up - most likely through the attic - and then it really did erupt from there."
One pet dog escaped with the family, however 4 birds and a pet pig did not. The Red Cross has been called in to assist the family.
