Suspect tries to evade troopers on Redwood Highway
A suspect tried to evade Oregon State Police troopers just before noon Friday on Redwood Highway around milepost 21.
Troopers attempted to stop 28-year-old Brandon Croft’s vehicle for speeding but he allegedly began eluding authorities and he drove onto Hogue Drive and then Lake Shore Drive before skidding his vehicle to a stop and fleeing on foot.
Sheriff’s deputies arrested Croft several hours later when he attempted to report his vehicle stolen. Deputies cited and released Croft on charges of attempting to elude in a vehicle and on foot, speeding and for not having a driver’s license.
