Detectives said Stephen Noel, who was in a stolen car at the time, got away in a high-speed chase with speeds up to 80 miles per hour — and that’s just the latest criminal move for Noel. At the time, he was breaking probation for threatening to kill someone when Kent police spotted him in that ripped-off ride.
“This guy needs to be taken off the streets. He’s a very well known criminal in our area, he has no care for people in the community, he’ll do whatever it takes to get away. We want to put the pressure on him to get him caught,” detective Melanie Frazier of the Kent Police Department said.
Stephen Noel is 39-years-old and is a known gang member who detectives think could be couch-surfing at houses around Kent and Auburn — the last time he was spotted was in the Lea Hill area.
