SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A car chase in Springfield came to a head in a woman’s garage, Monday night.
Around 9:30 p.m. an officer first spotted a car that was acting suspicious on the 2000 block of Q Street.
Police say the officer pulled behind the car near the Dari Mart at 19th and Q streets and the car sped off. The officer chased the car for a short distance before two men jumped out of the car at 17th and Q Street and ran through backyards. Ashley Dugan says that’s when one of the suspects hid in her garage.
“I could see him out this window and this window, he was sitting down like banging on the door,” Dugan said.
Officers eventually arrested both suspects, Devon Glenn, 33, of Eugene, and Dustin Borg, 32, of Springfield, and they were booked in the Lane County Jail.
Police say it was a team effort from the community. They said they got a lot of calls from residents who saw the suspects run through their yards.
