Shoplifting Suspects Arrested after Running Car over Police Bike

Redmond Police say two women were arrested after they shoplifted two carts full of toys from a Fred Meyer in Redmond on Wednesday.

An employee flagged down two officers inside the store around 5 PM on Wednesday to report a theft, police say. The officers then approached the two suspects as they loaded the stolen items in their car.

The two got into the vehicle and the driver quickly accelerated in attempt to leave, dragging one of the officers a short distance before hitting a post, police say. The officer avoided being hit by the car, but his police bike was crushed.
