High Speed Chase Ends with Arrest of Pickup Thief
A high speed chase ended Thursday night on a dead-end road with Medford police arresting Christopher Alan Page, 29. Page allegedly stole three pickups and tried to steal two others over a 24 hour period.
Page is facing myriad of charges including attempting to elude police in a vehicle and on foot. According to Medford authorities, during the chase Page crossed over the center lane into oncoming traffic on Columbus Avenue and drove onto the sidewalk on the other side of the street, blowing through stop signs and red lights at high speed.
Police terminated the pursuit because of the risk, but observed Page turning onto the dead-end road near Medford public works. Page ran to hide in some bushes at the end of the road but was discovered there by officers and transported to the Jackson County Jail where he is being held on $113,000 bail.
