At about 11 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 4, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office deputies located the stolen vehicle on Southeast Sunnyside Road near the Clackamas Town Center.
When the deputies attempted to stop Vanhorn and recover the stolen vehicle, he allegedly sped away.

Vanhorn was charged with unlawful use of a vehicle, attempt to elude, reckless driving, reckless endangering and possession of methamphetamine.
