Marion County Sheriff’s Office faced a high-stakes situation when Lieutenant Thoresen located a stolen vehicle in the vicinity of SE Sunset Harbor Road and Highway 441. The swift response of law enforcement personnel showcased their tactical expertise in bringing the incident to a close.
Deputy Weaver strategically deployed stop sticks ahead of the stolen vehicle, while Deputy Ricketts and Deputy Giddens initiated a traffic stop.
