“On 07/25/21, at approx. 0306 hours, a Galt Police Sergeant was conducting extra patrol in the new housing development near Boessow Rd/Crystal Way.
The officer observed a suspicious vehicle blacked out in the area and attempted to make contact with the vehicle. The suspect vehicle fled from the Officer and additional officers responded to assist.
Another officer located the suspect vehicle entering S/B HWY 99 at Fairway Drive and a pursuit ensued.
A short time later, the suspect surrendered in a parking lot off of Jahant Rd in Acampo, and was safely taken into custody. The male was identified as Eric Lee, 37, of Acampo.
Lee was arrested for felony evading, driving under the influence of a narcotic, and driving on a suspended license. He was transported to Sacramento County Main Jail without incident.
Throughout last night’s patrol shift, officers located and arrested a total of 4 DUI drivers and safely removed them from our streets. Our officers are always working diligently to protect the citizens of our community!”
