A motorcycle Officer working a Target Zero Emphasis patrol located the stolen truck traveling westbound on I-90 towards Seattle driving recklessly.

The suspect was later transported to Bellevue PD booking where a drug recognition expert evaluated the suspect for DUI drugs and served a blood search warrant.
