NEWBERG, Ore. — Two different stolen vehicle cases were solved at the same time after a police pursuit in Newberg, Oregon over the weekend.
Suspect Randy Lee Cooper was driving a stolen Toyota Land Cruiser Sunday morning when police spotted him in downtown Newberg. Cooper fled in the Toyota when police attempted to stop him. In an attempt to elude police officers, Cooper crashed into a Buick Regal driven by Kristin Nicole Begue, according to KATU.
Police took Cooper into custody and discovered that the vehicle he crashed into had been reported stolen three weeks earlier. Begue was arrested for driving under the influence and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, according to KOIN.
Cooper was eventually charged with third-degree assault, attempting to elude a police officer, reckless driving and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
No one was injured in the incident.
