“Just before 6:30 p.m. on September 18th, a Placer County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a motorcycle near Highway 65 and Galleria Boulevard, in Roseville. The motorcyclist was traveling at an extremely unsafe speed of more than 100 miles per hour and failed to yield to the deputy.

The deputy continued to pursue the motorcyclist, who eventually stopped near Lincoln Boulevard, in Lincoln. The deputy contacted the motorcyclist, who was identified as 37-year old Cameron Jetton of Citrus Heights. Jetton is a convicted felon.

Upon a search of the motorcycle, the deputy found a backpack containing a stolen Springfield XD 40 caliber pistol with five .40 caliber rounds inserted into the gun. The pistol was registered as being stolen out of Placer County. The deputy also found an additional magazine and a bag full of .40 caliber ammunition, methamphetamine, and a modified contraption for ingesting methamphetamine.

Jetton was arrested and charged with evading with disregard for safety, being a felon in possession of a firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, possessing a controlled substance and a loaded firearm, and additional related charges.

We are grateful neither the public, nor our deputy were injured during the pursuit with Jetton; this is another strong reminder of just how quickly a situation can escalate, and how our deputies are expected to react just as quickly to keep the public safe from harm’s way at all times.”
