High-Speed Chase Ends in Arrest and Bail Enhancement for Suspect in Murrieta

“Press release update:

Murrieta, CA – On March 5th, 2024, Murrieta Police Officers engaged in a vehicle pursuit of a stolen Acura Integra. The pursuit ultimately terminated when the suspect driver of the Integra ran a red light at the intersection of Nutmeg Street and Jackson Avenue and collided with three uninvolved vehicles. Immediately following the collision, the suspect driver, identified as Ricardo Avila Perez (31-year-old resident of Perris, Ca), was placed under arrest but was not able to be booked into jail due to the need for medical attention. On March 12th, Perez was medically cleared and subsequently booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center for the following charges.

• 3455(a) PC-Post Release Community Supervision Violation
• 2800.3 VC-Evading Police Causing Serious Injury
• 10851(a) VC-Driving or Taking Vehicle without Consent
• 496d(a) PC-Receiving a Stolen Vehicle
• 11378 HS-Possession of Methamphetamine for sale
• 148(a)(1) PC-Resisting Arrest
• 23153(f) VC-DUI Causing Injury

The original bail set for Mr. Perez was $50,000, determined by his criminal charges. Murrieta Police Department personnel authored a “Bail Enhancement” in an attempt to set his bail at $500,000 in accordance with California Penal Code 1269c. The bail enhancement was approved by a Riverside County Superior Court judge and set at $500,000 instead of $50,000. Additionally, under California’s Three Strikes Law (Penal Code 667), the 2800.3 VC charge is considered a “violent offense” when evading capture causes serious bodily injury. If convicted of this “strikable offense”, the sentencing term can be increased.

Mr. Perez is currently on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) for previous criminal convictions in accordance with California Assembly Bill 109. Post Release Community Supervision is a form of supervision provided to an inmate who has been released from a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) institution to the jurisdiction of a county agency, pursuant to the Post Release Community Supervision Act of 2011.”
