Police arrested a burglary suspect Thursday afternoon along state Route 18 near Issaquah after the man led deputies on a high-speed chase.
King County Sheriff’s Office deputies pursued the man on eastbound state Route 18 after a police officer identified him as a suspect in a burglary late in the morning. The man then refused to pull over and attempted to flee from police.
Once the suspect reached Tiger Mountain southeast of Issaquah and south of Interstate 90, he abandoned the vehicle and fled into the forest.
Deputies and the sheriff’s office helicopter, Guardian One, searched the brush for the man.
Police later located him in the brush, and arrested him.
