CCSO report – On August 16th at about 8:10 PM, the Coos County Sheriff’s Office attempted a traffic stop on a Class I ATV (quad) on Airport Lane near Spinreel Road in Lakeside for operation without head lights and operating on the shoulder of the roadway. The operator, 38 year old Jeffery Ross, then attempted to elude, turning down Spinreel road, driving recklessly and endangering other vehicles on the road including a bicyclist and a person on foot. Ross then abandoned the vehicle in front of Dunes Mobil Ranch and attempted to elude on foot south bound onto the railroad tracks. The sheriff’s deputy pursued Ross for about four hundred yards down the tracks and was able to end the pursuit by tackling Ross as he turned off of the tracks, attempting to get to Highway 101. Oregon State Police officers in the area assisted with the pursuit and investigation. The ATV was determined to be stolen from the Hauser KOA earlier this year. Ross was issued multiple citations for the above mentioned charges and released. There was also a loaded syringe with suspected Methamphetamine seized. The recovered ATV was taken to impound by Mast Brothers Towing.
