On August 30th, 2019, a deputy assigned to the East Los Santos Station attempted to effect a traffic stop on a motorcyclist for traffic violations. The motorcyclist failed to yield and led the deputy on a high-speed pursuit. The pursuit was terminated for public safety concerns soon after the subject fled. The deputy broadcasted the subject's description over the sheriff's radio system, where operators disseminated the information to local law enforcement. Later that night, detectives from the Los Santos Police Department advised the subject had exited a different vehicle and entered an apartment complex on Atlantic Avenue in the East Beach community. Upon further investigation, it was discovered the subject lived in one of the apartments.
Deputies and officers jointly searched the subject's apartment and located him hiding in a bedroom. The vehicle the subject had left outside of the complex was searched as a result of the vehicle being impounded. The search led to detectives discovering two shotguns and a modified semi-automatic pistol. The subject was arrested for felony evading and various firearms-related charges.
