HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — One suspect was arrested and a second remains outstanding after a dangerous high-speed pursuit in Hesperia.
It happened on Wednesday, October 9, 2019, at about 4:17 am, when deputies from the Hesperia sheriff’s station located a stolen 2006 Ford F-250 by the intersection of Main Street and Key Pointe Drive.
Spokesman Edgar Moran told VVNG deputies initiated a felony traffic stop on the vehicle and when it failed to yield, a pursuit occurred.
Moran said the suspect vehicle traveled northbound on Amargosa Road and entered the Victorville jurisdiction.
“The suspect vehicle reached speeds of approximately 85 MPH, almost collided into marked patrol units, traveled on the wrong side of the roadway, and ran multiple red traffic lights. The suspect vehicle then entered the northbound onramp of the I-15 traveling southbound,” stated Moran.
The suspect vehicle then lost control and rolled onto its side.
Moran said two white male adults exited the vehicle and began to flee on foot.
One suspect, later identified as Troy Hoffman, 27, a resident of Cherry Valley, fled eastbound across the freeway but was detained by deputies.
The other suspect fled westbound and after an extensive area check was not located.
Hoffman was arrested and booked into High Desert Detention Center for PC496D(a) and VC2800.2(a). His bail is currently set at $100,000 and he’s scheduled for arraignment in a Victorville courtroom on October 11, 2019.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Hesperia Sheriff’s Station at 760-947-1500.
