On Tuesday, November 13, 2018, at 1:29 a.m., a Portland Police Bureau Canine Team officer located a stolen 1993 Honda Accord being driven south on Northeast 102nd Avenue over Interstate 84. Upon locating the stolen vehicle, the officer broadcast a description of the vehicle and the vehicle's direction of travel. Additional officers responded to assist in stopping the driver of the stolen Honda Accord. When a cover officer arrived, the canine team officer turned on the emergency lights to his patrol vehicle. After the overhead emergency patrol lights were activated the driver of the stolen Honda fled from the officer by continuing to drive south on Northeast 102nd Avenue. The canine team officer provided updated information to additional responding officers. A patrol sergeant positioned spike strips in the 300 block of Northeast 102nd Avenue, along the anticipated path of travel of the suspect and the stolen vehicle. The driver of the stolen vehicle drove over the spike strip, deflating at least one of his tires. Officers continued to provide updates of the suspect and the stolen vehicle's location. Officers observed the suspect stop the vehicle near Ed Benedict Park, located at 10200 Southeast Powell Boulevard. The suspect ran from the vehicle and police canine, Maverick, pursued the suspect and assisted in detaining him until his partner and other officers arrived where he had detained the suspect. Officers took the suspect into custody. The suspect has been identified as 22-year-old William C. Appell. Appell was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on charges of Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle, Attempt to Elude by Vehicle, Attempt to Elude on Foot, Interfere with a Peace Officer, Driving While Revoked - Misdemeanor Level, Possession of Methamphetamine, and a warrant for Unlawful Use of a Motorvehicle. ###PPB###
