VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A 22-year-old suspect driving a stolen vehicle was arrested after leading deputies on a pursuit in Victorville.
It happened on April 27, 2021, at about 11:18 pm, when Deputy Martinez with the Victorville Police Department spotted a stolen 2015 Hyundai Sonata in the area of Bear Valley and Amethyst Roads.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Mara Rodriguez said the deputy attempted to make a traffic stop on the vehicle and the driver, later identified as Jacob Rodrigo Gomez, failed to yield.
“The suspect led deputies on a 6-mile pursuit which came to an end near Sundown Road and La Mesa Road when he hit a curb and the car became disabled,” stated Rodriguez. “The suspect fled from deputies on foot but was quickly apprehended.”
A sheriff’s deputy was not injured after his patrol unit crashed into a tree as the pursuit came to an end.
Gomez was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center for evading a Peace Officer with disregard for safety and vehicle theft. He is currently being held without bail due to a violation of parole (PRCS). A preliminary hearing is scheduled to take place inside a Victorville courtroom on May 7, 2021.
