Suspects in Friday chase still at large

BLUE LAKES – Law enforcement officials are still searching for two suspects who led police and California Highway Patrol on a high-speed pursuit last Friday.


The chase took place around 9 p.m. Friday, leading from Ukiah to the Blue Lakes area, as Lake County News has reported. Law enforcement was in pursuit of a stolen white Ford Focus registered out of Eureka.


Capt. Justin Wyatt of the Ukiah Police Department said the pursuit began just south of the city limits, and continued eastbound on Highway 20.


Ukiah Police officers were joined by one Ukiah-area CHP officer, said Wyatt. Mendocino County Sheriff's deputies also were reported to be involved in the pursuit.


Wyatt said the subjects in the Ford Focus hit a deer near Lake Mendocino but kept going.


Once in Lake County, Lake County Sheriff's deputies responded to assist, according to reports from the scene.


Also responding were local CHP officers, said CHP Officer Adam Garcia.


“Our officers went out and helped out with the perimeter and search for them,” said Garcia.


Wyatt said the vehicle chase ended at Le Trianon Resort, where the subjects abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene on foot.


“We don't have the people in custody so it's still under investigation,” said Wyatt.


A be-on-the-lookout alert was issued to law enforcement to look for the suspects, but Wyatt did not offer any more information about the situation, including descriptions of the people being sought, due to concerns about jeopardizing the case.
