Traffic Update....Crazy Chase Around Arnold Area...Suspect Still on Loose

Arnold, CA...After an apparent residential robbery law enforcement officials from numerous agencies have been up and down Hwy 4, on residential streets, Forest Service Roads and now the vehicle has been abandoned in the Avery area. So now it is a foot search to apprehend the subject. Please use caution in the area and locking your doors might be a good idea and be on the lookout for the suspect. (Update as of 6:06pm...We just checked in with CCSO and the suspect is not in custody yet) (Update as of 7pm. We checked in with CCSO & CHP and the suspect is still at large.)

    Got caught breaking into a home.
    On the run. Thank you Sheriff DiBasilio for adding all the extra patrol in our area to crack down on him.
    He now knows enforcement in Arnold is stepped up and on his and his little buddies!

            Dont know how much they are doing.
            Grey truck, white male caught breaking into house. Calls cops. They dont show up for ever.
            They finally do and this yahoo in a broken down truck leads 4-6 cop cars on chase, DITCHES THEM BEHIND WHITE PINES and to make matters worse one of the sheriff deputies lost him and got his cruiser stuck.
            Scanner has him calling a tow now.

            You have got to be kidding me.

            Whomever you decide to vote for in this sheriffs race please take notice what is happening here in Arnold into consideration.
            This is what we are dealing with in this crime wave.

            Kwik serve has the perp on camera but I guess the camera doesn't actually work.
            Kinda like last week where they were broken into and the alarm didnt actually work either.

            Go ahead John, you cant take down the nonstop spam but you'll erase this since its telling the truth about whats happening in the area.

              Holy hell officers, why don't you let us locals deal with this? For one we wouldn't have gotten our cars stuck chasing a tweeker in a broke down truck.

              These tweekers are running this town.

              This is why I carry a gun, registered but no permit and always have a few loaded ones inside my house. I have no kids, but if someone is on my property and tries to break in, I'm going to unload it on that person, no if's an's or buts. And I won't try to wound him, wounded people can live and sue me for protecting my families life and property. Nope, I'm not a hard ass, I'm just protecting my family from harm. A pacifist or liberal I'm not. I worked for my belongings.

            Maybe if we legalize weed, criminalize guns, and make felonies misdemeanors that will do it.
            Wait, thats what just happened.

            It's really simple.
            The state of CA voted in prop 47 and 57
            Now everything is a citation. Keeping any criminal in jail is impossible. Check with Gov. Brown.
            His early release program is fantastic.
            You want to blame somebody. You blame the Gov. And his cronies that supported that vote.
            You want to blame somebody, look to the voters.
            You want to thank somebody. Thank the Sheriff, the deputies, the CHP and Angels PD that stepped in to help. They put their lives on the line today. How about gaining some respect for those men and women. Yes, we are all tied of this fellow. But he is back on our streets because of early release and voter initiatives.
            Not the officers and DA! They get to follow the law. Not make laws.

              So should we blame Jerry that he was able to lose 4-6 cop cars in an old beat up truck? Seriously?

              I support law enforcement. I respect law enforcement
              but I also know they have to be accountable and be able to get called on when they screw up.

              How many times has this thug ditched our local law?

              You know you can support our boys in blue, through and through without wondering why the same mistakes keep happening right?

              They had angels police up here in Arnold? I live in white pines. I heard them coming thru. I thought. Maybe someone at the moose lodge needed a medic. Thank goodness they were no kids out in the street playing. Or something. They had to be going over 50. They were flying!

              There you go. We pay for a new jail to "house criminals" but they get let out. Check mymotherlode, it's there, Felon arrested with a loaded gun. What do they do? Put bail at $10,000 hoping the felon comes up with bail so "we" don't have the expense to house the criminal. If this was a felon in the (sorry) Bay Area, the bail would be $150,000 minimum.....of course if it was SF and he was illegal, he'd walk.
              Tough on crime? Sure as hell not here. To further the problem, our good law enforcement officers are going after the same guys, time after time, wasting time and money because our Judges keep letting the same people walk with this low bail amount.

                Illegals are not involved in this case, so I'll ignore that part of the rant.

                But I agree that these local criminals should be kept in our new local jail and not allowed out on low bail. I don't know if the DA is not asking for higher bail or judges are not imposing higher bail, but someone is not doing their job correctly. Or maybe the sheriff doesn't want the expense of feeding and guarding prisoners in the jail. Whatever the root cause, this turnstile justice is not working for citizens plagued by repeat offenders.

                BTW, Brown was under court order to deal with prison over-crowding and did what he had to do. None of that applies to our local jail, which is not part of the prison system.

4 cruisers chasing a misdemeanor, most likely a $500 tow bill. Who caught this dickhead breaking into a house and why didn't they shoot him? Deputies get paid by the hour, coroner is salary.

You all are small minded pathetic people obsessed with gossip and drama because you have nothing better else to do in this dry ass county. You have no proof that it was him, and all you assuming it was him just goes to show who the real low life scum bags are. And this John person running this site needs to take it down. All he does is post slander and over exaggerate things to get things stirring because he's the worse of them all. Get a real job you low life vulture... All you're good at is jabbing other people. All of you are such a waste of time. Move on and get a life. If this happened down in the city no one would take a second glance but since this county is so "goody goody" and filled with yuppies that's all you scum have to do. So all of you are the true criminals. Quit badgering someone you don't even know. Maybe all of you oldies need to start working again because you all are obviously so bored and ashamed with your own lives.

    It's very unfortunate. His picture is posted on other sites in the act of stealing on camera. Not just yesterday, but many times.
    Proof enough.! You go ahead and try to defend him this time, and the last 50 times with his arrests in Calaveras County, El Dorado County, Toulumne County.
    Take a look in the mirror. The issue is all the old people you talk about did go to work and work hard for what they have. Just to have this 30 year old piece of crap steal it and not get a job. We are tired of being violated by the same offenders.
