PASO ROBLES — Two men, Patrick Dale Sandeffer, 30, from Atascadero and Raymond Gene Anthony Glove, 24, of Paso Robles, attempted to evade police on Tuesday, Dec. 12 in Paso Robles after an attempted traffic stop.
Paso Robles Police Department identified a vehicle associated with "known felon” Kyle Daily, who has two felony warrants out for his arrest, traveling north on North River Road.
"Last night our officers were patrolling the area of Capitol Hill and Creston Road and they observed a car that they thought might have been related to some suspicious circumstances a week prior,” Lt. Ty Lewis of the Paso Roble Police Department said. "At the time they had attempted to contact that vehicle and it had fled from them and went into the riverbed and was able to get away from the officers."
Tuesday night police spotted the vehicle and attempted to make a vehicle stop but the driver of the 1994 Toyota Four Runner failed to yield. Police followed the vehicle out of town toward Wellsona Road and requested assistance from the California Highway Patrol. CHP took over the pursuit at Wellsona Road with speeds reaching 75 mph. A CHP helicopter was dispatched to monitor the pursuit. A spike strip was deployed and caused one of the suspect vehicle’s tires to deflate. The vehicle failed to yield and continue to turn on to State Route 46 East and then onto Union Road.
One of the CHP units used the PIT (Pursuit Intervention Technique) maneuver, which causes the vehicle to reverse its direction, but the suspect continued forward, intentionally ramming a second CHP vehicle in an attempt to escape. The vehicle then turned onto Tuley Road and reached a stop at a dead end. Sandeffer bailed and took off running with his dog, but was apprehended by CHP officers. He was taken into custody and booked into county jail for assault with a deadly weapon, driving under the influence, concealed weapons and drug charges along with multiple warrants. In the vehicle officers found, meth, marijuana and daggers. Sandeffer‘s bail was set at $35,000. The total time of the pursuit with CHP was 12 minutes once their assistance was requested at 10:05 p.m.
Glove remained in the vehicle and was arrested by Paso Robles Police Department officers for being under the influence of a controlled substance and possession of narcotics.
CHP Officer Patrick Seebart said that motorists who see a police pursuit in progress should, “Do your best, move to the right, like always, when you see the lights and hear the sirens….. slow down, stop and move to the right and will get out of your way as fast as we can."
