A 911 dispatcher helped a woman get away from her ex-boyfriend who was following her in a car reported stolen.
The woman called 911 about 1:30 a.m. Sunday, claiming Alejandro Garcia, 30, of Pasco, was violating a no-contact court order, said Sgt. Scott Warren.
The dispatcher told her to drive toward the police station in downtown Pasco where Sgt. Chad Pettijohn stopped Garcia in a red Honda Prelude.
The Prelude was reported stolen from the 1800 block of West Sylvester Street early Saturday after it was left running and unlocked to warm up.
Garcia was taken to the Franklin County jail on suspicion of possessing a stolen car and violating a court order.
“The car will be returned to the owner as soon as officers can search it with a warrant for further evidence,” said Warren.
