WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) – A wanted woman from Washington state was arrested Sunday evening in the Tillamook Forest, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

Nikkayala Santoya Ashley Grant, 24, was wanted on a fugitive warrant and, thanks to a concerned community member, was caught on a Beaverton Police Department photo enforcement camera, according to deputies.

Deputies say they previously tried to pull Grant over after numerous traffic violations in a van, but weren’t able to after she took off at a high rate of speed through a Beaverton traffic camera.

Grant now faces local charges in addition to the fugitive warrant, including felony elude/attempt to commit crime, reckless driving, and false information to police officer.

Gee, they really don't say how the came to as helped catch her, now do they. And sure, I can see them charging her with something related to her fleeing a traffic stop, but shoot, all that. Come on, saint she got enough to hold her in Washington? What's the point in. All that? Cops mind at work, I guess.
