VICTORVILLE – Two were arrested after leading deputies on a high-speed pursuit in the City of Victorville on Monday. At around 2:18 a.m. a deputy from the Victorville station observed a 1005 Infiniti that was missing both front and rear license plates. The deputy attempted to stop the vehicle for the code violation on Bear Valley Road near the Cottonwood Avenue intersection. The driver of the vehicle, later identified as 40-year-old Colorado resident Bryan Saldana sped away failing to yield to the lights and siren of the marked patrol vehicle.
He continued on for approximately four miles running red lights, swerving into oncoming lanes, and driving at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour. Saldana attempted to turn on Peach Avenue and lost control of the vehicle crashing into the fence of a home. Saldana, a male passenger identified as 45-year-old Jason Lopez, also from Colorado and an unidentified woman all exited the car and fled the scene on foot. Both Saldana and Lopez were located and detained a short time later. The female passenger was not located and remains outstanding.
Deputies searched the suspect vehicle, where two loaded firearms and several rounds of ammunition were located. Saldana and Lopez were both determined to be convicted felons and were prohibited from being in possession of a firearm. Both were arrested and booked into jail for being a felon in possession of a firearm and Saldana, also was booked for evading a peace officer.
