Report #: 22-2750
On01/14/22, at about8:29 a.m., a Ventura Police Department Motor Officer attempted to make a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle for excessive speed. When the officer attempted to make the traffic stop, the vehicle’s driver failed to yield and continued driving. Approximately one minute later, the vehicle stopped in the area of Community Memorial Hospital and the three occupants of the vehicle fled on foot in an effort to evade arrest. Multiple Ventura Police Motor Units and Patrol Units responded to that area and began a search for the occupants. Ultimately, the driver, Robert Pulido, was located by an officer hiding in the bed of a pickup truck in the parking lot of Community Memorial Hospital.
Officers suspected that the vehicle may be stolen, so they contacted the registered owner. The owner indicated that the vehicle was in fact stolen out of Oxnard earlier that same date.
Pulido was arrested and booked at the Ventura County Jail for being in possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of drugs, driving while under the influence of drugs, and evading arrest. Pulido also had a felony warrant for his arrest at the time of the incident.
