BEND, OR – A Bend woman suspected of dealing methamphetamine was arrested after trying to flee from police in a shopping center parking lot.
Suzette M. Delancey, 46, has been under investigation for over nine months for allegedly trafficking methamphetamine in the Central Oregon area.

As they attempted to take her into custody, she tried to flee the scene in her vehicle, striking a police vehicle before driving into a light pole in the parking lot. After a brief struggle, she was taken into custody. No injuries were reported.
Delancey was booked into Deschutes County Jail.
