“Last night at the Moss Landing Harbor, our deputies were investigating a vehicle with fraudulent registration. Christopher Moreno was standing with the vehicle with a bottle of alcohol when deputies approached him.
Christopher decided it would be a good idea to run away from the deputies. After a short foot pursuit, Christopher jumped in the water and tried to swim across the harbor. By this time one of our deputies with a drone showed up to capture the action and to give play-by-play updates of the impromptu Moss Landing Triathlon.
Oh back to the car he ran from… Deputies found a loaded firearm and lots of methamphetamine inside a fake soda can. Both the driver, Yolanda Torrez, and Christopher were arrested and taken to the Monterey County Jail for felony charges.”
