Suspect located in Waha area

The Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office has located the suspect who allegedly wrecked a stolen car in the Waha area Sunday and fled on foot.

Deputies were called to the area Tuesday morning to again look for 49-year-old Jerry Glass on a report that a homeowner in the area shot at him.

The sheriff’s office issued a news release Tuesday afternoon indicating Glass had been located, however no other details were released.

Investigators say Glass drove away from a traffic stop in Whitman County on Sunday morning and later crashed a stolen vehicle in the Waha area. He fled on foot from the main Zaza Grade into the canyon.

A Nez Perce Tribal Police officer found a wallet in the road belonging to Glass. He was seen Tuesday near Soldiers Meadows and Webb Ridge roads, but eluded authorities by fleeing into a forested area. (Lewiston Tribune)
