Man who ran from cops in stolen car wanted

H. Dyke

Police are seeking a man who eluded them in a stolen car early Sunday, May 22.

He was identified by Oregon State Police as Harley H. Dyke, 19, from Lynnwood, Wash.

A chase began when an Oregon State Police trooper spotted a white 1994 Honda Civic speeding southbound on Interstate 5 near milepost 265, going 110 miles per hour. When the trooper tried to stop the car the driver exited into Keizer and headed north.

The driver of the Honda made a U-turn at Brooklake Road and River Road, where a trooper crashed into the vehicle’s side. The Honda spun around, knocking over a stop sign, and continued south.

Keizer Police eventually found the car on a dead end road near Keizer Rapids Park, and took a passenger into custody. Arrested was Joshua D. Douglas, 18, of Lynnwood, Wash., for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

A Marion County Sheriff’s deputy and canine tried to track the driver, who fled the car, but couldn’t find him.

State police are asking anyone who has seen Dyke to call the OSP Northern Command Center at 800-452-7888.
