• Aberdeen man refuses to get off hood of his stolen car, recovers car

    ABERDEEN, Wash. – An Aberdeen homeowner stopped a would-be thief this week after refusing to get off the hood of his stolen car. Aberdeen Police Captain John Green tells us at about 1 Tuesday morning they were called to the 1000 block of West Perry for a vehicle theft. Investigators learned that the homeowner had already recovered his car, and that the suspect had fled on foot. As a K-9 track was setup, the victim explained that they overheard someone enter their home and steal their keys. Thinking it was their son, the victim went to tell him he couldn’t borrow the car when he saw a stranger backing into his other vehicle and leaving. The man said he jumped on the hood of his car and rode it down Perry street where the suspect, later identified as a 27 year old transient, tried to shake him by stopping fast and backing up. When that failed the suspect fled on foot, and was later apprehended by APD
    A 27 year old transient male was taken into custody for residential burglary, theft of a motor vehicle, vehicle assault, DWLS 3rd degree, making a false statement, and hit and run unattended.  The suspect is well known to local law enforcement and is currently in custody in the City of Aberdeen jail.
