SAN BERNARDINO – An elusive motorcycle rider, who was chased by a half-dozen law enforcement agencies while going from one freeway to another over three different counties, was finally arrested after an hour long pursuit on Sunday.
Edwin Cuahuizo, 35, of San Bernardino, was turned over to San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies on charges of felony evading, said spokesman Jodi Miller.
Cuahuizo was estimated to have reached speeds up to 160 miles per hour, said Miller. He was eventually arrested when a deputy on patrol saw the rider of the black Suzuki GSX-R 1000 run a red light at Base Line and Victoria Gardens Lane at 1:27 p.m.
Miller said Cuahuizo was heading toward Interstate 15 and was accelerating to a speed over 100 mph with the deputy in pursuit.
Along the way, he picked up patrols from the California Highway Patrol, plus police agencies in Ontario, Pomona, Montclair and San Bernardino, plus county sheriff’s deputies.
Having eluded his police pursuers, Cuahuizo managed to stop and fill up his gas tank in the Diamond Bar area. He was spotted by a sheriff’s helicopter crew and a CHP air unit.
Cuahuizo briefly rode into Orange County before heading eastbound on the 60 freeway, eventually exiting Interstate 215 at Mira Monte Drive and West 27th Street in San Bernardino.
San Bernardino Police spokesman Sgt. Siobhan Sansone charted Cuahuizo’s ride taking him to a house at the 3100 block of Little Mountain Road, near Shandin Hills Golf Course and Blair Park.
Sansone said Cuahuizo was spotted by a sheriff’s helicopter crew that saw him pushing the motorcycle into a residential garage. He was arrested at 2:33 p.m., said Sansone, without incident.
Cuahuizo was booked into West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga.
