What Was That All About? East County Calls Sunday


Yesterday was pretty busy for east county and the Elma area. This is a catch-up on some of those calls, as our team, for the most part, took Easter Sunday off to enjoy with our families. fior call catch ups we go through our online recorded call audio from our GHScanner App Services. We listen to the audio and these are the details of the incident that we are able to gather. There has been no official press release as of writing this.


4:40 PM WSP spotted a Black sedan doing over 100 MPH at Devonshire overpass eastbound 12 who fled from the traffic stop. WSP did not go in pursuit, the reason for the attempted stop was speed and erratic driving the fleeing vehicle was a 2012 Mercedes out of Bellevue. An Elma officer ended up behind it at SR 12 and 3rd St Elma, he attempted to stop the vehicle at Fairgrounds RD and took the subject into custody and turned over to WSP.

4:39 PM An Erratic motorcycle was reported EB 12 from Schouweiler RD a black motorcycle at a high rate of speed and erratic with a female passenger on the back.  Motorcycle exited at 3rd St. Elma.
