• Ex-police chief convicted of stealing charged with DUI


    MONTESANO, Wash. - Last year, the former Montesano Police Chief was sentenced to six months in jail for stealing from the city.


    Prosecutors said Ray Sowers used police department credit cards to make $17,000 in purchases for home electronics and other personal goods.


    KIRO 7 Eyewitness news has learned Sowers was arrested Monday night for allegedly driving under the influence.


    State troopers said Sowers was spotted driving erratically near Montesano.
