Carlsbad CA— Late last night, June 11, 2017, a City of Carlsbad Police Officer initiated a traffic stop in the area of Poinsettia Lane and Avenida Encinas on a Dodge SUV for a vehicle code violation. Once the officer activated his overhead lights, the suspect vehicle, occupied by three individuals, immediately fled the area.
The officer pursued the vehicle Northbound on Avenida Encinas. During the pursuit, the driver of the SUV committed several other dangerous moving violations. The driver of the SUV eventually jumped out of the vehicle while it was still in motion, and then fled the scene on foot.
The SUV continued to move forward for a short distance before colliding with a chain-link fence in the 4900 block of Avenida Encinas. The remaining passengers of the vehicle, a male and female adult, were detained at the scene.
Officers determined the male passenger, Ruben Jimenez (20), was on Post Release Community Supervision (“PRCS”) pursuant to AB109, and was subsequently arrested and booked at Vista Detention Facility for violating the conditions of his supervision. The female adult was release from the scene.
Carlsbad Police Officers, assisted by the Oceanside Police K9 Unit and Sheriff’s Air Support, searched the area for the driver with negative results.
