BEAVERTON, Ore. – Officers took a wanted man into custody Wednesday afternoon following a police chase that ended with a collision in Beaverton, police officials said.

According to police, the crash near Murray Boulevard near Scholls Ferry Road sent the suspect's vehicle into Murrayhill Pond.

The incident started about 2:15 p.m. for a suspicious vehicle near Erickson and Larson. Police identified the suspect as 26-year-old Chase Larrazabal, who was wanted on three outstanding misdemeanor theft warrants. They also recognized him as the person who led them on a pursuit last week.

Larrazabal got into a Toyota Tacoma with another 35-year-old person and led police on a chase through Beaverton. Police said that he dried to ram into three police cruisers during the chase.

Police said he collided with a Lexus sedan on Murray Boulevard, which sent the Tacoma into the nearby pond.

Police said Larrazabal pretended to act like a witness when police arrived on-scene.

The driver of the Lexus was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Larrazabal and his passenger were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

He was later booked into the Washington County Jail on three outstanding warrants, and several other charges from Wednesday's and last week's pursuit.
