Wanted Bremerton man arrested

A Bremerton man wanted by both Kitsap County and Oregon law enforcement officers was arrested Thursday as an early morning pursuit was ended by spike strips near the Hood Canal Bridge, the Washington State Patrol reported.

Spokeswoman Trooper Krista Hedstrom said that Michael W. Crummer, 24, was spotted by a Bremerton Police officer around 1:30 a.m. Jan 29 and attempted to elude that officer and several more from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, the Poulsbo Police Department and the WSP.

Crummer was eventually stopped when his vehicle crossed the Hood Canal Bridge and became disabled by spike strips placed on the road by a Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputy.

Crummer was then taken into custody and, after complaining of injuries, taken to Harrison Memorial Hospital. He was then booked into Kitsap County Jail after being medically cleared.

Crummer was wanted by Kitsap County deputies for questioning in connection with an assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence involving unlawful imprisonment and felony harassment.

He was also wanted by Oregon State Police after allegedly driving a Ford Mustang away from car dealership in Medford, Ore. while on a test drive. Later, authorities believe he was involved in the robbery of a convenience store in Albany, Ore.

Shortly before midnight Jan. 28, Hedstrom said that Oregon State police officers notified Kitsap law enforcement that Crummer was believed to be headed back to Kitsap County.

Crummer is scheduled to appear in Kitsap County Superior Court Friday afternoon after being booked on charges of felony eluding, possession of stolen property and burglary tools and a felony Department of Corrections warrant.
