A man who ran from Washington State Patrol troopers during a traffic stop was located a short time later by a police tracking dog and booked into the Clallam County Jail.
A trooper on patrol shortly after midnight Monday, Nov. 9, on U.S. Highway 101 near Happy Valley Road stopped a red 1990 Subaru going eastbound in westbound lane.
