“Earlier this week, two deputies with our Sheriff’s Enforcement Team (SET) saw a speeding driver who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.
They pulled the car over and found that the driver had no license and was on probation. The driver also admitted that there were drugs inside the car.
When asked, a passenger in the backseat of the vehicle provided a false name to the deputies. As the investigation continued, a fingerprint reader helped deputies learn the passenger’s true identity as 39-year-old Robert Duncan of Vallejo.
Once identified, deputies recognized the name as a fugitive they have been looking for. Duncan took off running, making it about ten feet before deputies were able to get a hold of him.
Unfortunately, he continued to resist by attempting to escape, despite the many requests by our deputies to comply. One deputy drew a Taser and told the suspect he would be tased if he did not comply, but the Taser was never deployed.
Additional deputies and officers from the Vallejo Police Department responded to assist. After a short altercation, our deputies were able to secure Duncan’s hands behind his back. Once secured, deputies lifted Duncan off the street to his feet within seconds.
When searched, deputies located a loaded revolver in Duncan’s waistband. He also had 8 grams of methamphetamine in a bag that he tried to leave behind. He was taken to the hospital for a scrape on his chin and a bloody lip but was quickly medically cleared and released from the hospital.
Duncan was booked on multiple charges including five felonies, four misdemeanors and for warrants related to prior violations of his PRCS terms.“
