Two arrested after high-speed chase, crash

Medina, Kirkland and Clyde Hill police officers assisted the Washington State Patrol in eventually apprehending two suspects after they led WSP on a chase across SR-520 at about 3:30 a.m. Friday, April 10.

The suspects took the Medina exit and headed southbound on 84th Avenue Northeast at a high rate of speed. Once at 84th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 24th Street, the driver of the stolen vehicle failed to negotiate the right-hand turn and lost control slamming into a large tree on the Overlake Golf and Country Club grounds.

Both male occupants fled in separate directions from the disabled stolen car.

The Medina officer requested assistance from the Kirkland Police K-9 unit. After a persistent track by the Kirkland K-9 unit and the Medina officer, both suspects were located hiding in residential yards - one in the 8300 block of Northeast 24th and the other in the 8600 block of Northeast 24th. Both suspects were taken to King County Jail for investigation of auto theft.

Damage to the Golf course and tree was estimated at $5,000.
