Man Dies Trying to Avoid Arrest by Jumping in Wenatchee River
- Written by Chief Dave Helvey, CCSO
On November 18, 2016 at 6:45 p.m. a Cashmere resident reported the theft of his 2010 Ford pickup. A Chelan County Deputy located the stolen truck near the intersection of Hay Canyon Road and U.S. Highway 2. The male driver fled the pickup, crossed Highway 2 and ran toward the Wenatchee River bank. Deputies located the male hiding near the edge of the river. The male ignored deputies commands and jumped into the Wenatchee River. Deputies tried to convince the man to swim back to shore but he refused, and was last seen near the middle of the river.
Swiftwater Rescue personnel from Leavenworth Fire, Cascade Ambulance, and CCSO Volunteer Services along with personnel from the Cashmere Fire Department, Ballard Ambulance, and CCSO were unable to locate the male. The initial search was suspended at 9:00 p.m. due to darkness.
Searchers located the male on Saturday morning at 11:00 a.m. The male has been identified as 30 year old Daniel Posey of Wenatchee. Mr. Posey was deceased.
