Kingsburg Home Burglars Elude Police for Six Miles
According to the official police report, on Wednesday, at approximately 11 a.m. three individuals, later identified as Lorenzo Herrera,19, Morgan Bray, 19, and Baldemar Ambriz,20, were caught inside a Kingsburg home trying to steal valuables.
The thieves were sighted by the home’s owner, an unidentified woman, who ran outside to a store and called the authorities, as well as her husband. Fearing that they might have been compromised, the thieves took everything they could and jumped in their getaway car, a red Dodge Ram pickup.
The woman’s husband arrived on time and begun pursuing the car. Meanwhile, the woman managed to call the authorities and to inform them about the event.
While speeding on the highway, the suspects’ vehicle was seen by a California Highway Patrol officer, who signaled the driver to pull over. However, instead of stopping, the driver raced passed the officer.
The car chase would last for six more miles before the car ends up in a ditch. Shortly after the crash, the authorities managed to detain Baldemar Ambriz, while the other two managed to flee the scene.
Minutes later, Herrera was found by a California Highway Patrol office. After a stand-off with Herrera pointing a .22 caliber rifle at the law enforcement officer, the man was subdued and taken into custody. The last Kingsburg home burglar was found later that day.
Both Bray and Ambriz were charged with obstructing a police officer, first-degree burglary, and conspiracy, but were later released after paying the $70,000 bond. On the other hand, Herrera was charged with conspiracy, obstructing a police officer, threatening an officer with a semi-automatic weapon, and first-degree burglary.
