Methed Up Parolee Just Out of Jail Leads Cops on Chase
After leading Benton County Sheriff's on a 30 mile high speed chase through Benton and Yakima Counties, now a suspect who just got out of jail has been captured.
Luciano Cortes, who never checked in with parole officer after being released in early April, led authorities on the wild chase before spike strips disabled his vehicle. However, he was able to flee on foot.
Cortes, who is considered a dangerous individual, is now facing a wide variety of charges. Sheriff's Deputies suspect he was high on meth during the chase. He has previous convictions for drugs and felony eluding officers.
However, after eluding police, his picture was posted on Fox Q13's Washington's Most Wanted, and he was captured due to tips called in. He's now in jail, facing the new charges related to drugs and the chase.
