Trio Ar­rested Fol­low­ing Calav­eras County Pur­suit

Escalon Times - - FRONT PAGE -

An early morn­ing po­lice pur­suit on Sun­day, Sept. 24 ended in the Farm­ing­ton area when the sus­pect ve­hi­cle crashed.

Calav­eras County au­thor­i­ties is­sued a press re­lease re­gard­ing the in­ci­dent on Mon­day, in­di­cat­ing that at about 1 a.m. Sun­day, a Calav­eras County deputy pa­trolling the Wal­lace area no­ticed a Ford Mus­tang trav­el­ling east­bound on High­way 12 swerve off and on the road­way, and then come to a stop in the road. The deputy ini­ti­ated a traf­fic en­force­ment stop, at which time the sus­pect ve­hi­cle ac­cel­er­ated and fled to­wards Val­ley Springs, cir­cling back to­wards San Joaquin County via High­way 26.

A Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol Of­fi­cer took over the pur­suit, which ended in the Farm­ing­ton area when the sus­pect ve­hi­cle crashed. The driver and pas­sen­gers were taken into cus­tody by the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol and booked into the San Joaquin County jail. Their names were not avail­able at press time.

Sev­eral hand­guns were re­cov­ered from the ve­hi­cle. Ad­di­tion­ally, the ve­hi­cle matched the de­scrip­tion of a ‘BOL’ – Be-On-the-Look­out – alert that was is­sued sev­eral hours prior by the Man­teca Po­lice De­part­ment for a rob­bery that oc­curred in their ju­ris­dic­tion.
