ROSEVILLE -- The Roseville Police Department said a suspect has been arrested after a crime spree that included a stolen golf cart, multiple carjackings, a hit-and-run and a crash into a North Highlands fence.
“I was at my dining room table and I counted probably 12 sheriff’s cars go by,” said Franklin Cain.
It was a chaotic scene for many people in Roseville and North Highlands Friday morning around 9:30 a.m.
Roseville police say it all started at Kaseberg Park. They say an officer was attempting a traffic stop on a man on probation, later identified by police as 28-year-old Timothy John Davis Pulley.
That’s when police say the driver sped off, leading them on a chase.
“Got in a pursuit. Ended up crashing the vehicle, exiting the vehicle and running,” said Roseville Police Officer Carlos Cortes.
But officers say the suspect didn’t stop there.
He stole a golf cart from an apartment complex near the Woodcreek Oaks area, according to the police department.
“After he stole the golf cart, he continued on foot and then he carjacked a vehicle in our Roseville area, got in that vehicle and then took off. And then the other carjackings occurred in Sacramento County,” Officer Cortes said.
Cortes was one of several officers pursuing the suspect along with California Highway Patrol officers and Sacramento County deputies.
With the help of the community, they were able to stay on the trail of the suspect, who was driving faster than 100 mph through residential neighborhoods.
“From there it just escalated and kept going to different surface streets,” Cortes said.
CHP officers were able to put down a spike strip to slow down the suspect, who was later arrested after crashing into a fence on Watt Avenue in North Highlands.
The police department reports the person involved in the hit-and-run was injured.
The suspect faces several charges, including assaulting an officer, hit-and-run and evading officers.
The department is investigating several scenes throughout the city.
