Suspect arrested after stolen car chase ends at Valley Hi Country Club

Some bad decisions by a suspected car thief led to a police chase and an eventual arrest with the help of a police K9 taking a “bite out of crime”.

According to the Elk Grove Police Department’s description of the events on their Facebook page, the suspect was driving a stolen car southbound on Franklin Blvd. Stealing a car was the first bad decision.

An EGPD motor officer saw the vehicle and was waiting for backup when the suspect sped off and eventually turned down the entrance to Valley Hi Country Club. That was bad decision number two. There is only one way in and out.

According to an eyewitness at the golf course, the car was speeding down the entrance and jumped a curb struck a tree near the club’s practice putting green, and then flipped end over end before landing on its roof and then back on its wheels. At that point the suspect got out of the vehicle and began to run away, leaving a female passenger in the vehicle. Bad decision number three.

An EGPD motor officer was close behind and followed the suspect several hundred feet away when the suspect fled to the area near the driving range. The officer then had the suspect at gunpoint with the suspect on the ground. As more officers responded, including a K9 unit, the suspect ignored officers’ commands and the K9 was used to help detain the suspect. Bad decision number four.

Elk Grove Police identified the suspect as 28-year-old Juan Reyes. After being “medically cleared” (possible K9 bites?) he was transported to the County Jail. The passenger suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital.

Reyes faces several felony charges related to the incident as well as active warrants
