Around 11:15am 25-year-old Jared Hester, of Edmonds, WA , was driving a stolen 2018 Honda when he crashed it near Warden. When a passerby stopped to try to help him, he jumped in their car, and drove off. The victim called 911 and the chase was on.
Grant County Deputies chased Hester towards the intersection of SR17 and I-90 where he tore through the Shari's Restaurant parking lot then ran off Kettleson Road. He got stuck in a field full of water, and fled on foot. He ran to the nearby West Coast Auto Dealers lot, tried to steal another car before finally being apprehended.
