“On July 13th at 5:30 p.m., a deputy attempted to initiate a traffic stop on North Foothills Boulevard in Lincoln. The driver refused to pull over.
A vehicle pursuit ensued where the suspect drove in the opposite lane of traffic and reached speeds up to 100 mph. The suspect eventually pulled over at the intersection of Athens Avenue and Fiddyment Road.
With the help of the Rocklin Police Department, the occupants of the vehicle were detained. The driver was identified as 31-year old Lindsey Papola, and the passenger was identified as 34-year old Mario Rose-Berumen, both from Grass Valley.
Both suspects had outstanding Placer County warrants. A search of their car revealed three stolen empty gun boxes, several empty ammunition magazines, a BB gun, a paintball gun and a wooden baton.
The deputies were able to get a hold of the owner of the gun boxes, who told deputies his storage unit in Grass Valley was broken into, and the boxes found in Papola’s car contained firearm accessories.
Papola and Rose-Berumen were arrested for possession of stolen property and their warrants. Papola was additionally arrested for evading a pursuing peace officer in the opposite direction of traffic.”
