6/9/2009 - Pursuit ends in arrest of felon and weapons recovered

At approximately 3 p.m., Tuesday, June 9, 2009, Chula Vista Police Officers were alerted to a vehicle in which the driver and passenger were suspected of narcotics violations. Patrol officers observed the vehicle in the area of E. Palomar Street and Nacion Avenue and attempted a traffic stop.

The driver refused to pull over and led the patrol unit to the I-805 at L Street where he entered the freeway on northbound lanes. At that time the suspects were observed throwing evidence out the car window, a vehicle registered in California.

A short pursuit ensued with speeds never exceeding 50 mph. The pursuit ended just north of Bonita Road on I-805. The passenger in the suspect vehicle fled and ran into the Sweetwater river bottom. He was not located despite an extensive search by officers from the Chula Vista, San Diego and National City police departments.

Arrested was 33-year old Reyes Delgado, a Chula Vista resident. He was charged as a felon in possession of fire arms, and evading a police officer.

Delgado was in possession of a 45 caliber semi-auto handgun and a 38 caliber revolver. The guns were not loaded.

The 2nd suspect will be charged with possession of narcotics for sale and evading a police officer when he is located.

Suspect Delgado was taken to San Diego County Jail.

An arrest itself is not evidence that the defendant committed the crimes charged. The defendant is presumed innocent until the Government meets its burden in court of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
