PENDLETON - A police chase on Highway 11 resulted in the arrests of two Pendleton residents by Oregon State Police on Sunday.

Police arrested Kari Jean Buck, 31, and David Ray Arnold, 22, both of 415 S.W. Frazier Ave., Apt. 2, Pendleton.

Arnold was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, unlawful entry into a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle, reckless driving, manufacture of a controlled substance, a fugitive warrant from Idaho and attempting to elude police.

Buck was charged with the same counts except for the fugitive warrant.

The chase began when a patrol unit noticed a stolen Ford Tempo pulling out of McGregor's in Adams.

The vehicle fled at high speeds and the two people inside the car were noticed switching places, according to OSP.

The car sped through the construction zone at the Weston Highway bridge, OSP reported. After eight miles, police stopped the car with a spike strip at milepost 24.

Police also reported finding a small meth lab in the vehicle.
