Three arrested after police pursuit ends near I-205

PORTLAND, Ore. - Three people were arrested Thursday evening following a police pursuit on Interstate 205.

The incident began as a report of a disturbance at a Southeast Portland apartment complex. Portland police officers responded to Laurel Place Apartments, at Southeast 125th Avenue and Powell Boulevard, to a report of two men with guns, police said.

When officers responded, a suspect's vehicle sped off, triggering a pursuit that eventually made its way to I-205 northbound.

Officers placed spike strips on the roadway to deflate the vehicle's tires as it exited onto Northeast Killingsworth Street. Officers also rammed the fleeing vehicle to spin it and slow it down, according to the Portland Police Bureau.

No one was injured, police said.

Arrested were 20-year-old Kevin Reinhard, 26-year-old Shawn Keele and 22-year-old Chelsea Scott. They face charges of methamphetamine possession, and Reinhard and Keele also face additional felony charges, including firearms violations, police said.

Port of Portland police found a handgun thrown from the car when the chase went into Portland International Airport's main terminal," Portland police said.

Additionally, police said they found a replica handgun, knives and a small amount of meth inside the car.

Police closed Killingsworth as they investigated the case and cleared the scene. It briefly caused traffic delays, but as of 7 p.m., traffic was moving smoothly again.

The suspects were booked into Multnomah County Jail.
