June 11 Stop Stick Deployments Oklahoma Highway Patrol

MUSKOGEE – A Californian who was on the lam from a drug conviction in the Golden State was in possession of 49 pounds of methamphetamine when he was arrested in eastern Oklahoma while attempting to evade a traffic stop.

Marco Antonio Naranjo-Aguilar, 30, from Sacramento, pleaded guilty last year in the Eastern District federal court here to possession of methamphetamine with intent to distribute, and was sentenced to 19.5 years in federal prison.

The charge arose from an investigation by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

An OHP trooper reported an SUV bearing a New York license plate was speeding through a construction zone on Interstate 40 a short distance west of Sallisaw in Sequoyah County the morning of Jan. 20, 2022. When the trooper attempted to stop the driver, the eastbound vehicle sped up to 115 miles per hour, the officer said.

The Roland Police Department was alerted and one of its officers deployed “stop sticks” – tire deflation devices equipped with myriad spikes – on the highway. The SUV ran over the devices and its speed began to decline. The trooper said that after “several more miles” he “performed a tactical vehicle intervention” that forced the SUV into a ditch, where Naranjo-Aguilar was arrested.

In the SUV was found a suitcase containing 48 zip-style plastic baggies and two vacuum- seal baggies which contained 22.3 kilograms of methamphetamine.

Besides imposing the prison sentence, U.S. District Judge Ronald A. White ordered Naranjo-Aguilar to forfeit $3,085 in U.S. currency that had been in his possession when he was detained.

A woman wanted for escaping from a Florida prison is headed back behind bars.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Sarasota County deputies tried to pull over 22-year-old Aaliyah Christian Foster shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

Instead of stopping, authorities say Foster, who officials say was driving a stolen Lexus, took off and was later spotted by a trooper on I-75 in Lee County.

The trooper tried to pull her over, but she bolted again.

Troopers say she was weaving through traffic and speeding, reaching 115 miles per hour at one point.

According to FHP, the speeding Lexus made several aggressive lane changes in front of the patrol vehicle and threw an unknown object from the passenger-side window.

Troopers tried to perform a precision immobilization technique (PIT maneuver) to stop the Lexus but were unsuccessful.

In Collier County, troopers and deputies deployed stop sticks, which deflated the tires on the Lexus, but she kept driving south on I-75 on the rims, according to FHP.

Many people believe if you reach “home base” the police can’t get you. That is not true, especially if it’s not your house as one Philadelphia woman found out.

On June 2nd at approximately 12:35 p.m. First Sergeant J.D. Florendo, Deputy C.R. Szentkuti, and Deputy A. De Hoyos responded to the 3000 block of Warrenton Road for a reckless driver. Fauquier County dispatch advised a red Ford Mustang that was all over the roadway and nearly struck a motorcyclist was heading towards Stafford.

June 11 Stop Stick Deployments, Idaho, High Speed Chase

POCATELLO — A 23-year-old local man was recently arrested after leading officers on a high speed pursuit from Pocatello into Fort Hall, authorities said.

Gilberto Coronel, of Pocatello, has been charged with felony eluding following the incident, which began to unfold around 1:20 a.m. on Saturday, according to police and court records the Idaho State Journal recently obtained.

An officer in an unmarked police car was in the area of Marlu Street and Poole Avenue when he observed a woman crying and in some type of distress while walking in the middle of the street, police said.

The officer began driving toward the woman when he observed a white 2011 Buck drive toward the woman and stop briefly, said police, adding that the officer had to drive past the car in order to make a turn around on the street.

After making a U-turn, the officer observed the white Buick driving away and no longer saw the woman in the street, so he asked an officer in a marked patrol vehicle to initiate a traffic stop on the car to check the welfare of the woman, the report says.

The officer in the marked patrol vehicle attempted to stop the driver of the Buick, later identified as Coronel, in the area of McKinley Avenue and Marlu Street but Coronel fled at a high rate of speed, according to police.

Coronel failed to stop at two stop signals at busy residential intersections and reached speeds in excess of 70 mph in zones posted at 35 mph, said police, adding that Coronel then entered Interstate 15 and began heading north toward Fort Hall.

Coronel reached as fast as 118 mph on Interstate 15 before exiting in Fort Hall where police there joined the pursuit, according to the report.

10. Michigan woman leads police on high-speed chase while allegedly driving under influence of drugs, without license – Michigan

(CBS DETROIT) – Two people were arrested following a high-speed chase in Michigan on Tuesday. One of them was allegedly driving with a suspended license and is accused of operating the vehicle while under the influence of drugs.

At 8:25 p.m., Livingston County deputies tried to initiate a traffic stop on a gray Ford F-350 truck in Brighton Township because the license plate wasn’t on the vehicle properly and appeared to be unregistered.

The truck fled, leading deputies on a chase that reached speeds that exceeded 80 mph through Brighton and Hamburg Townships.

Dash camera footage shows that Hamburg Township officers deployed stop sticks when the truck entered the township, deflating three tires. The truck kept traveling but eventually stopped at the dead end of Old Road.

The passenger, a 38-year-old Brighton man, was arrested and taken to the Livingston County Jail for outstanding warrants. He isn’t facing any charges in connection to the chase.
