Orting Traffic Stop for Speeding Leads to Felony Arrest of Driver:
During the holiday weekend, the Orting Police Department conducted a routine traffic stop on a vehicle for speeding. After contact was made with the driver, it was found he had two felony warrants issued for his arrest. One dealt with his sex offender status for failure to register; the other warrant was for escape. The driver was arrested and booked into Pierce County jail.
