Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office was notified May 16 that a reported stolen trailer was at a residence on Bates Road in White Salmon. The Sheriff’s Office as well as the Bingen-White Salmon Police Department responded, as the previously reported trailer was linked to a certain vehicle.
Upon contact at the residence, Deputy Dwayne Matulovich was advised that Jeremy Scott was driving the vehicle in question. Officer Madelynn McIlwain from Bingen-White Salmon Police Department spotted the vehicle and attempted to stop it for expired vehicle license and he failed to yield. Scott jumped out of the vehicle and ran into the bushes. Scott had several felony warrants out for his arrest, according to the report.
Deputy Gaven Marble was called out with the search dog Profi to conduct a search. K9 Profi led several officers to an area of several abandoned vehicles. Commands were given to surrender with no one surrendering. Profi located Scott under one of the vehicles by biting him and dragging him out from under the vehicle. While Scott was being bit he kicked Profi several times in the head. Deputy Randy Wells, Deputy Dustin Vorce and McIlwain took Scott into custody.
A search warrant was conducted at the house and the stolen dump trailer was recovered. The case is still actively being investigated and future charges are expected, according to the Sheriff.
