Generic parolee wanted on evading, gun charges

Some parolee does something, wanted by some cops

If you see a "man in his 30's" driving some type of motor vehicle, call the  CHP--He matches the description of a parolee wanted for armed kidnapping.

If you see a “man in his 30’s” driving some type of motor vehicle, call the CHP–He matches the description of a parolee wanted for felony evading and firearms charges.

As a rule, in order to avoid copyright suits, Paco does not reprint entire copyrighted articles. Instead, I follow a general guideline allowing me to excerpt no more than 3 abridged paragraphs. Granted, I often stretch the envelope and reprint a bigger chunk. To date, the extra traffic generated by the numerous backlinks seems to negate any concerns of editors relating to potential copyright infringement–Paco scratches their backs, as it were.

In any event, today Paco reprints the following Santa Cruz Sentinel article in full because, copyrights notwithstanding, the article says nothing–The parolee isn’t named or described although it is clear the CHP knows his identity!  The article was actually “updated” 8 hours after publication but still: no name, description, vehicle information…nothing.

So it is, Paco is reprinting nothing, in its entirety.

Until additional information is released, citizens in the northern coastal region are advised to be on the lookout for a nondescript 30-something man in a generic car…Now, it seems to Paco a “CDCR Today” blurb or an official CDCR.CA.GOV press release should be online containing the critical information–A wanted parolee endangered the police and public, was in possession of a handgun and remains in the community!

Kindly get to work on that, Dr. Psychretary. –

Officers chase down parolee

The California Highway Patrol is searching for a parolee who led officers on a pursuit on Highway 1 that reached speeds up to 100 mph.

The pursuit started about 4:20 p.m. Saturday on southbound Highway 1 near Mar Monte, officer Chris Micheels said.

The identity of the man in his 30s has not been released.

The chase was called off due to safety reasons, however, the suspect was seen a short time later at Airport Boulevard in Watsonville, Micheels said.

The suspect allegedly tossed a loaded revolver in the center median during the pursuit, Micheels said. The gun was recovered.

The suspect fled from officers at Airport Boulevard and has not been found, Micheels said…(Santa Cruz Sentinel)

    Perhaps he just found the gun, and was late for a dentist appointment, and therefore left the gun where the cops would get it as he went on to his appointment.

    Perhaps the article itself reflects more of the very liberal mindset of the Santa Cruz area, than the information needed to identify and apprehend the culprit. After all, the parolee was evading the cops, he really didn’t hurt anyone, did he? And freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose—that is something to ponder. I imagine Santa Cruz is teeming with absconders, many of whom live in the Tannery and are thereafter generically referred to as “the artists formerly known as the principals to a crime.”

    Isn’t preserving and promoting art more important than providing petty details for public safety?

      You may be on something there. Besides, the guy performed a spontaneous gun turn in, for which he deserves praise and a little slack.
