Alberto Mendoza, Joseph Gomez Detained after Police Pursuit Ends on Highway 138 near 15 Freeway
CAJON PASS, CA (June 25, 2021) — Alberto Mendoza and Joseph Gomez were arrested after a police chase ended on Highway 138 near the 15 Freeway Tuesday evening.
According to a sheriff’s spokeswoman, the chase began around 7:30 p.m. Upon receiving multiple calls, Victor Valley officers tried to make a traffic stop on a 2006 Nissan Altima. However, the driver of the Nissan led law enforcement on a 34-mile chase that ended in the Cajon Pass.
Subsequently, the vehicle came to a stop when it became engulfed in flames for unexplained reasons. Soon after, authorities helped the 21-year-old driver, Mendoza, and 19-year-old Gomez out of the vehicle.
Following the accident, officers booked Mendoza into High Desert Detention Center for evading an officer and Gomez for carrying a stolen firearm and other charges.
