Ventura | Hit and Run Suspect Arrested

Ventura Police Department – Incident Press Release

On August 18th at 3:42 PM  Ventura Police received a call of a stolen vehicle in the 900 Block of Weber Circle. The owner had left the vehicle unlocked while working in the area and returned to find it missing. At 1549 hours, the Ventura Police Command Center began receiving several 9-1-1 calls about an erratic driver, later identified as Jonathan Coronado, driving the stolen vehicle. The calls started in the 500 Block of Ventura Avenue and reported Coronado moving east through the city. One caller reported being rear- ended by the vehicle at the intersection of Seaward Avenue and Ocean Avenue. A patrol officer saw the vehicle traveling on Seaward Avenue near Harbor Blvd and initiated a traffic stop. Coronado yielded at Harbor Blvd & Beachmont St but did not comply with officers’ commands. He engaged in a standoff of about 30 minutes before he was successfully taken into custody.

Coronado was arrested and transported to the Ventura County Jail where he was booked for possession of a stolen vehicle, hit and run, resisting/delaying arrest, and a parole violation. A review of the Ventura County Superior Court website shows that Coronado has previously been convicted of Trespassing and Resisting/Delaying a Peace Officer.
