Two arrested in Lake Oswego after chase in stolen vehicle
Two people were arrested Tuesday morning after leading Lake Oswego police officers on a chase in a stolen vehicle.
David Michael Dahlen, 24, was lodged at Clackamas County Jail on charges of attempting to elude a police officer and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. 23-year-old Sara Star Furlong, a passenger in Dahlen's vehicle, was cited and released on two outstanding warrants for her arrest.
According to police, the incident began around 5:03 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27. A resident near the 100 block of Fifth Street called police after noticing a vehicle pull up in front of a neighbor's home and people entering the neighbor's car near the 400 block of Lake Bay Court. The caller told police that the people drove away heading south on Fifth Street toward Cabana Lane, which is a dead-end road.
An officer arrived and found the vehicle on Cabana Lane near a walking path. Police said when the officer turned on his emergency lights, the vehicle drove away on the walking path. After hitting large rocks, the car stopped and the two people fled on foot.
With help from a Beaverton Police Department K-9 officer, the two people were found hiding near a home around the 800 block of Berwick Court. They were taken into custody "without incident," LOPD said in a press release.
When police discovered the vehicle was stolen, it was returned to its owner.
