At about 1939 hours a Yakima SO deputy in the Buena area spotted the stolen Prius being driven by a lone occupant. The suspect ran from the vehicle but was apprehended a short time later. The Prius owner came to the scene and positively identified the suspect as the person that had stolen it from her by force.
The suspect is a 21 year old resident of Buena. He has been booked into the Yakima County jail for robbery and multiple counts of being in possession of a stolen motor vehicle. The suspect remains under investigation for the burglary as well as a third stolen vehicle that was recovered in the same area just before the suspect was spotted in the Prius. The 61 year old victim received only minor injuries from her fall and has her vehicle back.
