Two people with warrants from other counties were arrested Thursday in Prairie City.

Charles Downie, 26, of Milwaukie was arrested on several Tillamook County warrants, and Sarah Schindlbeck, 24, of Oregon City was arrested on a Clackamas County warrant, according to a press release from John Day Police Chief Richard Gray.

An outside agency notified the police department that a person with several warrants was in Prairie City, Gray said. The suspect was located at a residence on the 200 block of McHaley Street.

Gray said Downie attempted to run from officers but was taken into custody. Officers contacted Schindlbeck at the residence, who admitted she also had a warrant, he said.

Officer Scott Moore arrested both subjects with assistance from Gray.

According to court documents, Downie pleaded guilty to possession of heroin in Washington County on Aug. 5 and was sentenced to 45 days of incarceration and one year of post-prison supervision. A warrant was issued Nov. 20 for third-degree escape on Nov. 16 in Tillamook County.

Schindlbeck pleaded guilty to second-degree theft in 2015 in Clackamas County, and a warrant was issued July 17 for failure to appear, according to court documents.

Downie also pleaded guilty to harassment of Schindlbeck in 2015 in Tillamook County, and both were convicted of second-degree animal neglect that year, according to court documents.
