False ID Leads to Capture of Parolee at Large

LOMA LINDA – San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a parolee after he tried to provide a false identification during a traffic stop.

Timothy Earl Hamilton, 26, a San Bernardino resident, was a passenger in a car that was pulled over by deputies for a violation of a local municipal code, shortly before midnight on Tuesday in front of Hulda Crooks Park on Mountain View Ave.

When Deputy Sean Tabor requested identification, Hamilton “gave false information regarding his identity,” according to reports. Hamilton then bolted from the car, ran through the park in the direction of a residential neighborhood, with Tabor in pursuit. Before he exited the park, which is located in the 11800 block of Mountain View Ave., Tabor was able to catch up with Hamilton. He was taken into custody without further incident, said Tabor.

Once Hamilton’s true identity was discovered, a records check revealed he was wanted, and considered both armed and dangerous, according to court records. He was a parolee at large. Tabor took Hamilton to the Central Detention Center on charges of providing false identification to a peace officer, along with the parole warrants that had been issued.

The code violation was in reference to park hours. No information was provided about the driver of the car when Tabor made the stop.

Hamilton, who is ineligible for bail, was scheduled to face a court date today at Rancho Cucamonga Superior Court. Court records or law enforcement officials did not disclose the reason why Hamilton was on parole, though records show a Timothy Hamilton of nearby Apple Valley was arrested in 2008 and 2012 for cruelty to a child inflicting injury.
