Here Starts An incident, which started in Mason County last Thursday morning with the theft of a car belonging to Greg Souliere, Rt. 3, Box 472A, ended with one man dead in Olympia from a shotgun blast fired by an Olympia Police Officer, another man and two juvenile girls in custody in Chehalis. Souliere reported the car missing about 7:45 a.m. Thursday. A short time later, at a service station in Shelton, he saw the car go by driven by the man who was later arrested in Chehalis. Souliere and a man from the service station attempted to follow the vehicle as it went south out of Shelton on ttighway 101, but, lost track of it. The Mason County Sheriff's Office, which had been notified the stolen car had been spotted, started looking for it. The search continued until early in the .afternoon and included the use of the Washington State Patrol airplane to check over the area south of the city. Officers checked side roads to make sure the car had not been driven off into one of them. The car was later recovered in Chehalis after the man who was later shot, and his companions visited Green ttill. As they left Green ttill, the car scraped the side of another vehicle and the four abandoned the vehicle. The three were picked up by Chehalis officers during the afternoon. The fourth, identified as Michael C. Dawson, 21, Maple Valley, was the man who was shot in Olympia after taking an elderly Chehalis man hostage, and, after the vehicle they had taken broke down, took a State Patrol official hostage. Mason County Sheriff John Robinson said his department was continuing its investigation and that Prosecuting Attorney Byron McClanahan would probably be asked to file auto theft charges against the man being held in Chehalis. Sheriff's otficers are also continuing their investigation into an abandoned vehicle which was found not far from where the Souliere vehicle was taken. Officers had not yet determined whether tile vehicle was stolen or not. From items found in the vehicle, it is believed the four persons who were later arrested probably arrived here in that vehicle before it ran out of gas. ,deo Tickets On ;ale From Candidates The nine Mason County Rodeo Queen candidates began this week selling advance tickets to the rodeo which will be held in connection with the Mason County Fair in August.
