Police chase of stolen car ends with felon’s arrest

By The Spokesman-Review

A Spokane man convicted of car theft last week is back in jail after police say he led them on a high-speed chase in a stolen vehicle late Wednesday.

A police K-9 tracked Tyray H. Munter, 23, after police say the convicted felon abandoned the car in the area of North Stone Street and East Francis Avenue after fleeing a police stop near North Crestline Street and East Empire Avenue at 11:10 p.m.

Police ended the search after less than two minutes because Munter was driving dangerously, according to a news release. Citizens told police what direction he’d fled.

Munter was booked into jail on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle and attempting to elude police.

He’d pleaded guilty Aug. 25 to second-degree taking a motor vehicle without permission and use of drug paraphernalia and was credited for 43 days served in jail, records show.
