A search of her person turned up methamphetamine, heroin, and a glass pipe. Police say while investigating why an abandoned car wasn’t towed from ODFW property as previously requested, they saw a wheel and tire were stolen from the abandoned vehicle. A pickup parked nearby was occupied by a man and a woman. Police spoke to them; the man denied taking the tire but police saw it in the back of his truck. The man identified himself as a 49-year-old from Seaside, but Manz gave a false name and date of birth. When police stepped away to verify their information and learned her correct name and that she is wanted on multiple felony warrants, by the time they returned to the pickup, Manz left. The man returned the tire to the abandoned car as tow had showed; police waited down the road and after about 30 minutes the man, who he knew to be uninsured and driving with a suspended license, came driving past and turned down a side road. A traffic stop was conducted and the driver was cited for violations and his vehicle towed. Another trooper came on scene and the officers returned to the area where Manz had vanished. A trail was followed through the bush and Manz was located under brush near the river. She was transported to Clatsop County Jail and lodged on the warrants. Clatsop County Parole also issued a retainer. She was cited for possession of a controlled substance-methamphetamine, a felony; possession of heroin; and furnishing false information to police.
