Out of control suspects who refuse to cooperate with law enforcement face long term prison senteces

Wayne parked in this area when officers made a high risk felony stop and arrested him

37-year-old James Wayne faces three felony counts for vehicle theft, possession of stolen property – a 2006 Toyota Tundra, and possession of burglary tools.

Wayne was known recently as a transient in the Sunnyvale area, when on Wednesday, September 2 the San Jose Police Regional Auto Theft Task Force (RATTF) team members got a “hot hit” and were able to locate a stolen 2001 Honda that had gone missing earlier in the morning after the owner had left the keys in the vehicle and the car running before going to work.

RATTF officers continued surveillance on the stolen vehicle, and witnessed the suspect Wayne get inside. He drove a short distance and picked up a female passenger, and then drove to 490 South 11th Street, where they parked next to a Grey Toyota Tundra. But officers noticed that Wayne had placed an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle between the front seat and window. Detectives and plain-clothes officers made a high risk felony stop, and ordered Wayne out of the vehicle first. He complied and no further incident was reported as he was arrested.

Wayne resided in an apartment in downtown San Jose on Market Street.

For the past year Wayne resided in an apartment in downtown San Jose on Market Street.

This incident is only the latest in a long history of trouble with the law for Wayne. In December of last year, while residing at an apartment in downtown San Jose – across from the San Jose Museum of Art – he was arrested for burglary, possession of burglary tools, and an outstanding warrant. He had been charged just a month earlier with domestic violence – inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or co-habitant, possession of a stun gun and an illegal dirk or dagger, marijuana, a controlled substance, being under the influence, and resisting arrest.

Prior to that, records show at least ten arrests over the past nine years, beginning with a charge of assault in June of 2006. He was arrested various on drug or burglary charges, along with parole or probation violations in the intervening years.

The next court date for Wayne has been scheduled for Nov 24, 2015 in Dept 34 at 1:30 PM.

With more than 100 vehicles reported stolen in San Jose at any one time, there are incidents when the suspect in an otherwise simple vehicle theft, during a drug fueled high, refuses to cooperate with authorities, which can result in extremely dangerous situations.

According to Santa Clara County Court Documents, 31-year-old Luis Charles of Alviso was arrested for assault on police officer, attempted carjacking, reckless driving and resisting arrest. Charles appeared before the Honorable Shelyna V. Brown in Dept 34 on Tuesday, Oct 13. He and is facing two additional charges for assault with a deadly weapon.

No bail has been allowed. Charles is being housed in the Santa Clara County Main Jail and is expected to appear on three separate cases for similar incidents on Nov 13 in Dept 34 at 9:00 AM.

On July 28 plain-clothes detectives had attempted to contact him to see if he would talk with them, but then at approximately 4:45 pm, the detectives advised dispatch they were “in a vehicle pursuit with a known wanted felon.” Santa Clara Police officers then spotted Charles driving recklessly in a green Honda. That is when things escalated as Charles threw his drugs and drug pipe from the window as he drove erratically. Charles knew the police, and had clearly shown them that he would not be compliant.

Luis Charles lost control of the vehicle neat this corner, but the pursuit did not end there.

During the pursuit of the suspect, Santa Clara PD officers watched as he increased speeds up to 50 MPH while throwing paper towels and a glass pipe from the driver side window. During the pursuit, Charles lost control at the intersection of Spreckles Avenue and State Street in Santa Clara. As SCPD officers parked behind the suspect, he put the Green Honda in reverse and then hit the white SUV being driven by the SCPD Detectives. He then began to drive forward again.

However, Charles was not able to make it much farther from the scene. He managed to hit a parked vehicle approximately a mile away from the initial collision. Charles then ran from the vehicle and then attempted to pull a driver from a truck. However officers were able to catch up to the suspect and pulled him away from the driver. During the struggle Charles fought with officers, broke free and then ran toward a home and tried to force open the door. He then ran to a blue Ford Ranger and jumped inside and closed the door.

The SCPD detectives and responding SCPD officers were able to open the doors on the truck and hold Charles by both wrists, and were able to successful detain and arrest Charles for the incident.
