A Pasco man who allegedly took a car without permission was arrested Tuesday following a short chase.
Fernando Flores, 20, was booked into the Franklin County jail on suspicion of felony eluding after the chase in Pasco, said Sgt. Scott Warren.
A person told police that Flores took a Ford Fusion without permission and had been driving the car for a few days, Warren said. Police spotted the car Tuesday afternoon and tried to make a traffic stop.
Flores took off, leading officers on a chase before running from the car near Fifth Avenue. Warren said he was quickly arrested.
