INFORMATION SOUGHT ON HIGH SPEED DRIVER WHO FLED FROM OFFICER

Today at approximately 11:40 AM, a Lakeport Police Officer was on routine patrol and traveling south on N. Main Street near Sixth Street.  At that time it was raining and traffic was moving at a slow speed.  The officer saw a white Honda sedan pass by him traveling north in the center turn lane at over 70 MPH.  Due to the dangerous speed of the driver, the officer immediately turned around, activated his emergency lights and siren and attempted to catch up to the vehicle. 

The vehicle continued to travel north on Main Street at an estimated 90 miles per hour.  At the dead end of N. Main Street near the Del Lago neighborhood the suspect abandoned the vehicle and fled on foot into the Del Lago neighborhood.  The suspect then entered Clear Lake and is believed to have swum to the 1900 block of Lakeshore Blvd. 

Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputies and additional Lakeport Police Officers responded to the area and conducted a search but did not locate the driver.  Witnesses in the area stated that the suspect got into a green Toyota pick-up and was driven out of the area. 

The vehicle was searched and a small amount of suspected heroin as well as hypodermic syringes were located.  The vehicle was towed and stored. 

The suspect is described as a white male adult, 5’11’ tall, bald, unshaven and last seen wearing a black sweatshirt, blue jeans and black shoes.
