‘Chewbacca’ Tracks Criminal Running From Police in Moses Lake
This good boy ain't a scruffy nerfherder. It's Chewbacca, one of Grant County Sheriff Office's more popular officers.
It helps him be ready to take down big bad guys. After Andrew Gilbert made a traffic violation, a deputy tried to pull him over. Gilbert didn't feel like pulling over, so he sped away. He even ran a stop sign during the chase. When officers followed him to a dead-end cul-de-sac, he made a U-Turn to position himself back at the deputy. He then roared right for him, head-on. To avoid a head-on collision, the officer swerved out of the way. With the help of Chewbacca, the officer was able to track Gilbert through tracks left in the snow. He was later found in a motel 7 hours later and charged.
