(TIGARD, Ore.) - At about 11:15 p.m. last night, a Tigard police officer observed a suspicious vehicle (a early 90's Ford Mustang 5.0) near the intersection of SW Pacific Highway and Walnut St. which was reported stolen.

The officer along with another Tigard Police officer attempted to stop the vehicle but the suspect refused to stop and sped off north on Pacific Hwy. The officers continued to follow the vehicle which snaked through multiple Tigard neighborhoods.

At one point Tigard Police officers deployed a spike strip near the intersection of Burnham St and Hall Blvd. which deflated two of the suspect vehicle tires, however the suspect continued to elude officers.

The pursuit ultimately ended near the intersection of McDonald St. and Pacific Hwy where two Tigard officers were able to box the suspect vehicle in. The suspect fled the vehicle on foot in efforts to get away. An officer successfully deployed a taser to halt the foot chase and apprehend the suspect, while another officer secured the vehicle stop as there were still two other occupants remaining in the vehicle.

The suspect, now identified as Chad Curtis Loynachan of Tigard, DOB 020892, was taken to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries he sustained during his attempt to elude officers on foot.

He was treated, released and was then transported to the Washington County Jail where he was lodged on charges of Attempt to Elude (Felony and Misdemeanor), Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangering (X2), UUMV, Resisting Arrest and an outstanding Felony Warrant. The two passengers in the vehicle were not charged and were uninjured.
