Marvin Rosa, 20, of Santa Fe Springs, Louisiana, turned himself in 9:30 p.m. Rosa is accused of felony reckless evasion, a vehicle registration violation and obstruction of a police officer.


The following is a press release from the California Highway Patrol:

On 10/15/2019 at approximately 4:00 pm CHP officers attempted to make a traffic stop on a silver Nissan Sedan traveling northbound on US 101 just south of the Hooker Creek exit.  The Nissan failed to yield to the officer and continued at a high rate of speed northbound of SR 254 (Avenue of the Giants).  The Nissan continued north on SR 254 through Miranda and turned right on Jay Smith Road.  Approximately one half mile up Jay Smith Road the Nissan was abandoned and two Hispanic males fled the vehicle on foot and ran into the surrounding forest.  The two males are believed to be in their early 20s, between 5′ 5″ and 5′  8″ tall with a slim build.  One was wearing a black T-shirt with camouflage shorts and the other suspect’s clothing is unknown.  Officers searched the area and were unable to locate either suspect.

The California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.

CHP asks anyone who has any information regarding the suspects to call CHP dispatch at 707-268-2000.
