VICTORVILLE:(VVNG.com)- On Friday, March 25, 2016, shortly after 3:00 PM., Victorville deputies were involved in a brief pursuit following a theft from a department store.

According to Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez, a 29-year-old Victorville resident identified as Chandon Porter and a 16-year-old teen from Victorville were reported to have stolen merchandise from Kohl’s located at 14305 Bear Valley Road.

“They fled the store to a waiting vehicle, driven by 31-year-old Victorville resident, Harvey Yates“, stated Rodriguez.
