As a woman waited in the drive-though of the Jack in the Box at 595 W. Olive, a man busted her passenger side window and jumped in.

The man “ordered the victim to drive.” Instead, the woman got out of the vehicle with her keys.

However, 25-year-old Salvador Chavez-Gonzalez grabbed the keys and drove away in her car, and there he went north on M Street.

Soon, Gonzalez was doing doughnuts at Applegate Road and Commerce Avenue, and then drove the stolen car onto the lawn of of the CHP station.

The suspect jumped out and yelled, “I just stole this car and I’m on meth.”

His next words could have been, “I’m in custody.”  After the victim identified him, Gonzalez was charged with carjacking, robbery and auto theft, as well as DUI and attempted assault on an officer.
