A Pasco man was arrested after leading police on a car chase through the Tri-Cities with a 4-year-old in the car.
Police found more than seven grams of cocaine, prescription pills and marijuana in the car Thomas M. Ramirez-Garza, 25, was driving, Richland police Capt. Mike Cobb said.
Richland police tried to stop Ramirez-Garza on Sunday night for multiple felony warrants as he drove near George Washington Way, Cobb said. Ramirez-Garza fled to Pasco and made his way toward the blue bridge, where Kennewick officers and Benton County sheriffs deputies had laid down stop sticks.
The sticks popped one of Ramirez-Garzas tires, but he continued to drive into Kennewick before the tire finally gave out near the Parkade. Ramirez-Garza ran from the car and was eventually arrested, police said.
When police looked in the car, they found the child and the drugs, Cobb said. There were also digital scales and drug paraphernalia.
