An Oregon State Police troopers' suspicions Thursday afternoon while on patrol in Northeast Oregon led to the arrest of a wanted California fugitive operating a car stolen out of Walla Walla, Wash.

Shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday, an OSP trooper completing a traffic stop eastbound on Interstate 84 near La Grande was pulling back onto the freeway when he noticed a white Toyota Camry approaching from the rear noticeably slow down as its operator suddenly braked. The suspicious driving behavior continued to draw the troopers attention, so the trooper slowed down.

As the Toyota Camry displaying Washington license plates passed by, the trooper ran a check on the plate number and obtained a hit the car was reported stolen to the Walla Walla Police Department. The trooper stopped the vehicle with three occupants in La Grande at exit 261 and took the male driver into custody without incident. Additional troopers quickly arrived an detained a 33-year-old female. The third occupant was a 1-year-old child asleep in the back seat.

The driver was identified as Jon Wesley Jensen Jr., 40, from Convina, Calif. The trooper confirmed Jensen was wanted out of California on a felony parole violation warrant. The warrant was isued by the California Department of Corrections for an orginal charge of larceny/carjacking.

According to Walla Walla police, the car's owner reported it stolen after she started the vehicle to let it warm up and went back inside. Upon returning, the car was missing.

Jensen was lodged by OSP in the Union County Jail as a Fugitive from Justice and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle.

The female and child were transported from the scene by a Department of Human Services employee.
