ADELANTO, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Issiah Jose Aguilera, 20, a resident of Perris, CA was arrested by Adelanto deputies after leading them on a pursuit over the weekend.
It happened at about 12:30 am, on Saturday, March 9, 2019, when Deputy J. Mora with the Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station attempted a traffic stop on a 1999 white Ford Explorer in the area of Chamberlain Way and Koala Road in Adelanto.
According to a sheriff’s news release, the driver of the truck, later identified as Aguilera, made a u-turn in front of the deputy and sped away.
According to a sheriff’s news release, “Aguilera failed to yield for deputies, as he continued into the community of El Mirage, driving through stop signs and not obeying posted speed limits. The pursuit lasted for approximately 12.5 miles and was terminated by the watch commander as the fleeing vehicle approached the Los Angeles County Line.”
Less than 1-hour later, the suspect was seen driving the same white Ford Explorer on Sheep Creek Road in El Mirage, officials said.
“When deputies attempted to stop him, Aguilera fled showing complete disregard for public safety as he drove through several stop signs, a solid red light, drove at high rates of speed, and crossed over double yellow lines into oncoming traffic lanes multiple times. Deputies deployed a spike strip at the intersection Palmdale Road and Koala Road in Adelanto, subsequently causing his tires to deflate, ending the 15.2mile pursuit,” stated the release.
Issiah Jose Aguilera, who was driving on a suspended license, was arrested without further incident. He is currently being held at High Desert Detention Center in lieu of $150,000.00 bail.
