Foot Pursuit Leads to Arrest of One Adult, Two Tehachapi Teenagers
TEHACHAPI — Two Tehachapi teens and an adult suspect were arrested after a routine traffic stop turned into a foot pursuit on Wednesday afternoon.
Katrina Rodriguez and Raul Gonzales Jr., both 19-years-old, along with 32-year-old Isaac Brown were all taken into custody on various charges.
Rodriguez was booked in the Kern County Jail on a misdemeanor warrant and for being under the influence of a controlled substance.
Gonzales was booked into the Mojave jail for possession of a stolen vehicle, resisting/delaying a peace officer and three misdemeanors warrants, while Brown was released per citation for possession of a concealed dagger.
According to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office, the chain of events that led to the trio’s arrest began when a deputy investigating a separate crime attempted a traffic stop on a stolen green Honda Accord with Washington plates on Santa Barbara Drive near Santa Lucia in Tehachapi at around 1:30 p.m. on Dec 3.
The driver, later identified as Gonzalez, pulled over and fled on foot, while the passenger was detained.
During a search of apartments in the immediate area, police said they located Brown, who was reported by citizens in the area to have displayed a deadly weapon.
He was detained and found to have a dagger in his possession.
Deputies continued their search for Gonzales, finding him at around 5 p.m. hiding in a closet within an apartment in the 21300 block of Santa Barbara, where he and Rodriguez were arrested without further incident.
