OT .Officers fire at, arrest man suspected

"The rest of the story"


Officers fire at, arrest man suspected in morning truck theft.


Yakima County sheriff's deputies opened fire on a stolen pickup, culminating a wild chase Friday morning that wound its way through Yakima city streets. Several people were injured in collisions with the stolen truck, but none seriously.

The chase began shortly after 6:15 a.m. when a deputy spotted a 2001 Ford F250 pickup on North 40th Avenue that had been reported stolen minutes earlier in the Selah area, Chief Criminal Deputy Dave Thompson said.

The driver refused to stop, leading deputies on a high-speed chase through the city. The truck rear-ended a vehicle at Nob Hill Boulevard and 10th Avenue, then collided at an estimated 70 mph with a deputy at Lincoln Avenue and Sixth Street, Thompson said.

After boxing in the truck in the 400 block of Sixth Street, two deputies tried to shoot out the truck's tires when the driver tried to drive off, Thompson said.

Four shots were fired. The truck broke down a few blocks away near the corner of Sixth and B streets.

Thompson identified the driver as 20-year-old Joshua D. Ramirez. They said he was subdued after a struggle and will be booked into jail on suspicion of car theft, eluding, hit-and-run and vehicular assault.

Court records show Ramirez recently served two months in jail after pleading guilty to eluding police in connection with a similar chase Sept. 10 that ended when he crashed into a utility pole at 16th and Mead avenues.

Re: OT .Officers fire at, arrest man suspected

wow.....sorry to hear your truck got messed up...at least they caught the guy.....seems like most of the time when things get stolen, the police just report it but never look for it

sometimes i think its time for society to cut thier losses when its obvious someone has no value to society.

Re: OT .Officers fire at, arrest man suspected

I remember my grnandad sayin he would fool with the magneto on his old ford and plug it in to the body. ZAP if we could do this so ppl brushing up to the body wouldn't get hurt. while frying anyone tryin to rip off your rig(through the ignition maybe) hmmm ??? what can i say I hate theives worse than murders mostly b/c theives always mess with those who are doin right. murderous theives are better off. between my dog myself and my neighbor you better kill us, or else gettin it in the butt in jail will seem like a vacation. god I hate theives.

Re: OT .Officers fire at, arrest man suspected

I have only had the truck a little over a year now. It sucks to have to drive the jeep to work tomorrow BRRRR!
I Just got it going about a week ago too!

I hope there will not be a battle for replacement and such. Shoot, it only had 60,400 miles on it. the PO really took care of it.
