SPRINGFIELD, Ore. -- A man has been arrested after allegedly stealing a car and running from deputies Friday morning in Springfield.
Lane County deputies were patrolling the Dorris Ranch area around 6 a.m. when they said they noticed suspicious activity.
Deputies found a stolen vehicle and located a suspect, who ran into his home.
When deputies went to search for the man, they realized the suspect had left the house, likely through a back door.
Shortly after, someone reported seeing a man running, and deputies were able to catch up and make an arrest.
Neighbors who woke up to flashing lights and nearly a dozen police cars on their road said they heard deputies over the loud speakers.
Neighbor Kathy Bishop said she heard police say, “Come out with your hands up now before you get hurt.”
“And then they had their guns out, and then they brought the K-9 dog,” Bishop said.
Bishop said it was scary to watch.
The name of the suspect has not yet been released, but deputies said he will be charged with unlawful use of a vehicle.
Deputies said the car was reported stolen last week.
