Pasco police recovered a stolen Lexus after the suspect crashed while trying to flee early Monday.
Officer Matt Griffin spotted a stolen Lexus near the intersection of North 10th Avenue and West Lewis Street at 3:45 a.m., according to Sgt. Scott Warren.
The driver, later identified as Julio C. Parra, 26, of Pasco, didn’t stop for the officer and fled until the car jumped a curb and struck a pole on Road 28.
Parra then ran from the car and was caught by police, said Warren.
