However, when the Officers attempted to pull it over, the drive sped away from the scene. Refusing to stop, he led Pasco PD, and then Benton County Deputies on a chase that went through Finley, and then out into rural Benton County near Locust Grove and Edward Roads.

At that point, the driver drove out into a field, and he and his female passenger jumped out and attempted to flee on foot. Both were quickly captured.

The driver, identified as 33-year-old Abraham Carillo was taken into custody and charged with possession of a stolen vehicle, and his passenger, identified as 31-year-old Chenanne Pourier, also charged with possession of a stolen vehicle and an outstanding warrant. Both are now in jail, and the vehicle is being returned to its rightful owner.
