A man was recently arrested in connection to a hit-and-run that became a police pursuit in Placer County last week.
According to a press release by the Sheriff’s Office, Placer County Sheriff’s deputies engaged in a vehicle pursuit with a hit-and-run suspect in Granite Bay on the evening of March 9th. The incident began when deputies responded to a call near Douglas Boulevard and Seeno Avenue at around 5:15 p.m. and spotted the suspect’s vehicle while en route.
As they attempted to pull the driver over, the driver refused to stop and led the deputies on a pursuit through several neighborhoods.
The pursuit ended when the suspect’s vehicle became inoperable near Douglas Plaza Drive, and the driver, identified as 21-year-old Sheldon Conde of Granite Bay, was apprehended, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Further investigation revealed that Conde had allegedly been involved in a hit-and-run earlier in the day, where he had rear-ended another vehicle and attempted to steal the victim’s car keys from her hand. The victim was not injured during the altercation.
Conde is now facing charges of evading, attempted carjacking, and obstructing/resisting an officer.
Conde also allegedly attacked one of the deputies at a nearby hospital, where he was being medically cleared, before being taken to the South Placer jail. The deputy was not injured, the Sheriff’s Office said.
