Sheriff's deputies arrest two after pursuit on Table Rock Road
Sheriff's deputies arrested two Jackson County residents Friday night after the men allegedly tried to evade a traffic stop.
According to a Jackson County Sheriff's Department news release, a deputy at 9:08 p.m. attempted to stop a blue 1994 Toyota pickup truck for an unspecified traffic violation as the truck traveled westbound on Biddle Road. The truck didn't stop, however, and instead turned onto Hamrick Road, then onto Table Rock Road. The pickup was traveling at moderate speeds, the release said.
Deputies deployed spike strips as the pickup approached North Pacific Highway, damaging its right front tire and bringing the pickup to a halt just south of the intersection, the news release said.
Deputies identified the driver as 28-year-old Anthony James Winsbury of Trail and the passenger as 31-year-old Christopher Wes Moore of Gold Hill. Winsbury was arrested on charges of attempt to elude in a vehicle and felony driving with a suspended license. He also was wanted on a state parole board warrant for felon in possession of a firearm, the news release said. Moore was arrested on misdemeanor warrants out of Jackson County.
Both were lodged in the Jackson County Jail, where Winsbury, who has multiple prior felony convictions in Jackson County, is being held without bail on the parole board warrant. Moore is being held on $6,000 bail for failure to appear on charges of second-degree criminal mischief, second-degree disorderly conduct and third-degree theft.
