NORTH BEND, Wash. — King Co. Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a man who allegedly stole one of their vehicles during an arrest Saturday morning.

Deputies were first called to SE 79th St. & SE Reinig Rd. in Snoqualmie around 8:30 a.m., after neighbors reported a suspicious person in the area.

When investigators arrived, they found a man with several warrants out for his arrest.

KCSO has now identified that man as 26-year-old Snoqualmie resident Teddy Bell.

After he was detained, deputies said Bell was somehow able to get into the driver’s seat of a patrol SUV–and drive it away–while handcuffed.

The stolen SUV was recovered just after 10 a.m. near Rattlesnake Lake, but deputies, K9s, and a helicopter were unable to locate Bell until just after 2 p.m.

His previous warrants include charges of vandalism, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of stolen property.

He also has a previous felony probation violation out of Florida.

    This just cracks me up. The Sierra club global warming nuts in the media are always hammering SUVs. Anytime anything bad happens that involves one they make sure the acronym SUV is plastered all over the story. Then they proceed to use language that suggests that SUVs have minds of their own, such as “SUV runs over pedestrians” as an example. But here’s the BURNING question: So why is it now ok and not relevant to question why every freaking police department from city, county, and state is buying and driving SUVs? Almost every dam one of them is now driving an SUV. Hell, I’ve seen state troopers in pick up trucks! And don’t get me started on how they went from brand new Honda motorcycles to brand new BMWs within the span of 5 years. You guys don’t even question this. The cost is astronomically higher than the sedans they’ve been using for decades. All with our tax dollars. I never want to hear the state cry about not having enough money to fund law enforcement when they repeatedly blow our money like this.
