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.

Aberdeen man dies after motorcycle collides with SUV

ABERDEEN, Wash. - A motorcycle rider that died Sunday evening on second street has been identified as 43 year old Robert James Jenkins of Aberdeen.

Police Captain John Green tells us a Ford Explorer was turning into a driveway when the Harley Davidson apparently tried to pass him on the right and the two collided. The rider was taken to Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the Explorer was not injured, speed and alcohol appear to be a factor in the accident, which remains under investigation.

Green said they were called to the scene at about 6:53 Sunday night. The initial investigation indicates a 54 year old Aberdeen man was driving his white 1994 Ford Explorer westbound on W. 2nd St. At the same time, a 43 year old Aberdeen man was riding his black 2000 Harley Davidson motorcycle also westbound on W. 2nd St. 

As the vehicle began slowing to make a right turn into the driveway of his residence, the motorcyclist accelerated and began making a pass on the right. The vehicle driver was unaware of the passing motorcycle, and as he began the turn the two collided.

Stolen vehicle recovered after thieves switch plates in front of Aberdeen officer

ABERDEEN, Wash. - An Aberdeen officer watched from his unmarked car as two men attempted to mask their stolen car by stealing the license plates from a similar car in the Gateway Plaza parking lot Tuesday afternoon.
Police Captain John Green tells us one of their Sergeants was parked in an unmarked police SUV in the Staples parking lot around 2 P.M. Tuesday. While the officer was speaking on a cell phone he noticed a male subject standing by two very similar Honda Accords.
The Sergeant reported that the subject was scanning the parking, looking around, as he looked at the license plates of one of the Honda Accords. Another male wearing a red hoodie sweatshirt removed a license plate from one of the Hondas, and the two males began to drive away from the location in one of the Honda Accords.
The Aberdeen Police Sergeant stopped the vehicle, and discovered that the vehicle theywere in was reported stolen from Tumwater on 9/23/13.

The two suspects, a 34 year old Tacoma man and a 31 Shelton Man, were arrested for possession of stolen property and booked into the City of Aberdeen Jail.
A search warrant is being applied for by Aberdeen Detectives this morning for the recovered stolen vehicle.

The investigation is continuing.
