“Deputies responded to a rural field near the City of Gonzales for a report of a seriously injured victim dumped by the suspect. The victim was transported to a local hospital for medical care. A Honda was seen leaving the area and deputies attempted to stop it on north-bound Highway 101.
Tejeda eventually stopped in a driveway and fled from the Honda. Fortunately, K-9 Bond was in hot pursuit and apprehended Tejeda as he attempted to jump a fence. As deputies placed Tejeda under arrest a handgun fell from his waist band.
Thank you to Gonzales Police Department for their assistance with this incident.”
