Bend woman tracked down by K-9s, arrested after carjacking


A Bend woman was tracked down and arrested with the help of two K-9s Wednesday after a carjacking, according to police.

Lt. Bob Jones said officers responded to a reported car theft around 12:30 at the 7-Eleven on NE Greenwood Avenue.

The caller said a woman came up to the car she was a passenger in while the driver was inside the business, ordered her out of the car and drove away in the stolen vehicle.

Officers found the car abandoned about three blocks away, established a perimeter in the area and alerted residence in the area of the search for a suspect.

A short time later officers were able to track down the woman with the help of the Redmond Police Department’s K-9, Niza and Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Ronan.

The woman was arrested and taken to the St. Charles ER for injuries unrelated to her arrest, Jones said.

Police later learned the suspect had physically harassed an employee at the Masonic Lodge in Bend.

Charges are pending.
