Two people were taken into custody Tuesday after shots were fired in a stolen vehicle chase that began in the Carmichael area, California Highway Patrol officials confirmed.
Police arrested Robert Randall Bain, 41, from Sacramento and Audri Rose
Aldine Bean, 30, Yuba City after Bain led them on a chase through the Carmichael and Arden-Arcade areas, CHP officials reported.
The Sheriff's Department and the CHP were involved in the incident, which started at about 7:25 a.m when Sacramento Police Department auto theft
detectives were advised that Crime Alert received a tip of the location of a possible stolen vehicle. Detectives located the vehicle in the vicinity of Northwood Road and Woodcrest Road and handed the case over to the CHP.
Deputies spotted the vehicle, a silver and blue 2002 Ford F350 pickup truck near Watt and Whitney avenues, in the Carmichael area. The vehicle began to move at about 8:10 a.m. and officers attempted to stop Bain but he failed to stop and attempted to evade officers by continuing to drive away, the CHP reported.
Bain led officers on a chase through the Carmichael and Arden-Arcade areas, then on southbound Watt Avenue over Highway 50, then turned onto westbound Folsom Boulevard. He drove onto northbound Notre Dame Drive.
As the vehicle approached the intersection of Lake Forest Drive, an officer performed legal intervention in attempt to terminate the pursuit. The vehicle spun out, striking the drivers side door of the patrol vehicle, pinning the officer inside. The officer fired his service weapon several times at Bain, the CHP said. A second CHP officer also fired his service weapon.
Bain accelerated and fled the scene in a southerly direction on Lake Forest Drive. The vehicle traveled into the Florin-Perkins area. As Bain traveled southbound on Elk Grove-Florin, he turned west and drove through a strawberry field where he either stopped or became disabled, the CHP said.
Bain and Bean exited the pickup and fled on foot. A perimeter was established from French Road to Elk Grove-Florin and Florin Road to Gerber Road. The two were located and arrested outside a residence located in a mobile home park on the north side of Gerber Road, the CHP said.
Ther two were to be booked into the Sacramento County Jail. Charges are still pending, the CHP said.
