A vehicle left the location and appeared to be driven by another suspected gang member and a traffic stop was attempted.

The driver failed to yield and led deputies on a two-mile pursuit, driving at high rates of speed until the driver stopped at a residence in the 12000 block of Landmark Street in the city of Victorville.

The driver, later identified as Bernard Gomez, a 26-year-old documented gang member from the Azusa area fled on foot and was taken into custody in the backyard of the residence without further incident.

Investigators served the search warrant in the 13000 block of Bluegrass Place where they located several ounces of methamphetamine, along with evidence of methamphetamine for sales. The resident, 44-year-old Arthur Martinez, was also found to be a documented gang member from the Azusa area.

Both subjects were arrested and booked into the High Desert Detention Center.

Bernard Gomez was booked for Child Endangerment, Sales of Methamphetamine, Evading, Participating in a Criminal Street Gang and a no-bail Federal warrant. Arthur Martinez was booked for Sales of Methamphetamine, Participating in a Criminal Street Gang and Accessory to a crime.
