A Sonoma County man has been arrested after allegedly leading authorities on a pursuit in a stolen motorcycle.
According to a press release by the Healdsburg Police Department, dispatch received a call from a local business regarding an alleged theft on the afternoon of Saturday, September 16. The reporting party provided a description of the suspect and their vehicle, described as a black motorcycle.
Upon arrival at the scene, officers identified the motorcycle as one previously reported as stolen.
Officers located the motorcycle and attempted a traffic stop, but the rider instead accelerated southbound on Highway 101 at a high rate of speed, initiating a pursuit. The pursuit continued into Windsor. The suspect soon abandoned the stolen motorcycle on Highway 101 and attempted to flee on foot.
With assistance from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office and Henry-1, officers located and apprehended the suspect. The individual has been identified as Carl Trumble, 25, of Sonoma.
Trumble was booked into the Sonoma County jail on suspicion of possession of a stolen vehicle, felony vehicular evasion, possession of a controlled substance, shoplifting, violation of probation, reckless driving, and an outstanding warrant.
It was unclear at press time whether Trumble had retained an attorney. All persons arrested on suspicion of a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
