Apple Valley police find suspect hiding under travel trailer after pursuit

APPLE VALLEY, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A Victorville man on parole was found hiding under a travel trailer after police said he led them on a brief pursuit in Apple Valley.

It happened on July 4, 2019, at approximately 5:21 am when deputy Macias attempted to conduct a traffic stop at the intersection of Bear Valley and Kiowa Roads.

According to a sheriff’s news release, the vehicle was a Ford, Crown Victoria, black in color, front tinted windows, with spotlights and a push bar.

The driver, later identified as David MacDonald, 31, failed to yield and continued to drive recklessly at a high rate of speed colliding into a residential chain-link fence located in the 21000 block of Multnomah Road, officials said.

MacDonald drove a brief distance before stopping in the 12000 block of Omak Road.

“A short foot pursuit ensued and ended when Macdonald was found hiding under a travel trailer,” stated the release.

MacDonald was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center for VC 2800.2(a) evading a police officer and PC 594(a)(2), felony vandalism.  

MacDonald is currently being held on a $100,000 bail and is scheduled for preliminary arraignment on the said charges today in a Victorville courtroom.

Macdonald violated his PC3455 Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) making him ineligible for bail, booking logs showed.
