VICTORVILLE-(VVNG.com): Two Victorville residents were arrested on the afternoon of Tuesday, April 26th after leading deputies on a pursuit in Victorville. The pursuit began after a Sheriff’s Service Specialist from the Victorville Station located a 2000 Acura that was reported stolen earlier that day.
The Acura was parked at a liquor store at Hook Boulevard and El Evado Road and was occupied by a female passenger, later identified as 34-year-old Michelle Ola. The Service Specialist waited for deputies arrive at the scene, at which time a second suspect, later identified as 29-year-old Marvin Carroll leave the liquor store and get into the driver’s side of the vehicle.
He left the parking lot and headed west on Hook Boulevard. A deputy attempted to stop the vehicle with lights and sirens activated, at which time Carroll failed to yield causing a short pursuit. He continued on to run through several stop signs at speeds of up to 55 miles per hour.
The pursuit lasted for around two miles and ended on Seneca Road and Diamond Road when the suspect stopped the vehicle and both Carroll and Ola surrendered without incident. When the vehicle was cleared by deputies, a small dog was located inside the stolen Acura. Animal control was called to take custody of the dog.
Carroll was found to be on felony probation and Ola to have outstanding warrants. Both were arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center.
The vehicle owner was contacted to pick up his vehicle at the scene.
