VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — A 24-year-old Victorville man out on bail was arrested again after he ran from deputies following a pursuit in a stolen vehicle early Tuesday morning.

On March 10, 2020, at about 6:38 am, the suspect, Ceasar Campos was driving a 1997 Honda Civic and a deputy observed the vehicle exceeding the posted speed limit at the intersection of Borego and Anacapa Roads.

The deputy attempted a traffic stop and the driver failed to yield, officials said.

After a brief pursuit, Campos pulled the Honda into a dirt alley off Bonanza Road and fled the vehicle on foot.

According to a sheriff’s news release, “Deputy Lenihan tracked Campos’ shoe tracks from the vehicle to a house on Cholame Road and to a trailer located at the back of the property. Campos was located inside the trailer and taken into custody.”

As Campos was being searched, suspected methamphetamine and a glass pipe were found in the waistband of his pants.

“A search of the Honda was conducted and inside a backpack in the car, a loaded firearm and multiple vehicle registration tags were recovered. As the deputy was conducting the vehicle search, Sheriff’s Dispatch received a call from the registered owner wanting to report his vehicle stolen,” stated the news release.

Ceasar Campos, who was found to be out of custody after posting a $25,000 bond on a recent case, was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center. His charges include evading a Peace Officer, vehicle theft, possession of a stolen vehicle, carrying a loaded firearm during the commission of a felony, and vehicle registration fraud. He is being held in lieu of $100,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Victorville Superior Court on March 12, 2020.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact Deputy S. Lenihan at the Victorville Police Department at (760) 241-2911 or Sheriff’s Dispatch at (760) 956-5001.
