Keizer police arrested a Salem woman after responding to a disturbance call in the 1800 block of Jentif Court Northeast Tuesday, Sept. 27.
Keizer police were summoned to the address about 9 p.m. by a resident who said his ex-girlfriend was outside the home throwing rocks and wood at the garage doors and windows. She had also poured gasoline on the exterior of the structure.
Responding officers smelled gasoline and found a red gas can on the front sidewalk when they arrived.
The complainant said the incident started when he thought he heard someone kicking his car. He discovered the woman was kicking her own car and told her to leave. At that point, the man said his ex-girlfriend appeared to be leaving the area, but pulled back into the driveway and began throwing things at the house so he went outside again.
While he was standing in the driveway, the man told police the woman attempted to run him over with her car multiple times.
Gail Leap, 40, of Salem, was arrested and taken to the Marion County jail. She is charged with reckless endangering and criminal mischief.
Stolen vehicle chase ends in Keizer
On Thursday, Sept. 28, Keizer police officers were monitoring Salem Police radio about 2 a.m. when they heard that there was an ongoing pursuit of a stolen white pick-up.
A Keizer officer stationed himself ahead of the pursuit near the entrance to the Chemawa Indian School where he was able to spike one tire of the truck as it passed through the area.
The vehicle kept moving through northeast Keizer before crashing through the center median at Lockhaven Drive Northeast and River Road North causing more than $1,000 in damage to a decorative fountain.
That’s where the truck was discovered and a search of the area by KPD and SPD officers found a male and female hiding in a Shoreline Point apartment.
Dillon Wayne Emery, 25, was arrested and charged with a parole violation, possession of heroin, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, attempt to elude assault and reckless endangering. Emery was issued a citation by the Keizer officers for reckless driving, reckless endangering, criminal mischief, and hit-and-run property damage.
