A 41-year-old Chiloquin man was arrested Monday after leading Klamath Falls Sheriff’s Office deputies and Oregon State Police on a car chase, then running away after the pursuit ended, according to OSP.
According to the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy working under the recently signed enhanced services contract in Chiloquin attempted a traffic stop. The driver of the car attempted to elude, which started a pursuit through the Chiloquin area by OSP and deputies.
The chase ended on Modoc Point Road when the driver and two passengers ran away. Two of the three were later apprehended.
The driver of the vehicle, Donald Lloyd Campagna Jr., was arrested and taking to the Klamath County Jail for Reckless Driving, Reckless Endangering, Attempt to Elude-Felony, Attempt to EludeMisdemeanor, Felon in Possession, Kidnapping II, Menacing, PCS-Methamphetamine, and a state parole board warrant.
A female passenger, Christina Marie Waterbury, was cited for possession of concealed weapon. The male passenger who ran from the scene was not identified and is not expected to be an ongoing threat.
“This is exactly what we had in mind when the City of Chiloquin and I began discussing enhanced services a couple years ago. In this instance an expanded patrol led to the capture of a career criminal with outstanding warrants,” said Klamath County Sheriff Chris Kaber.
