ROSAMOND – A parolee was arrested Monday after leading deputies on a short foot chase outside a Rosamond gas station, authorities said.
The incident occurred around 4:05 p.m. Monday, Sept. 25, after a Kern County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to contact 24-year-old Raul Garcia near the Chevron at 25th Street West and Rosamond Boulevard, according to a news release from the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.
Garcia allegedly ran from the deputy, and the deputy chased him until other deputies arrived, according to the news release.
“[Garcia] attempted to hide under a truck, then ran into the business and was taken into custody as he attempted to run out of another door,” the news release states.
“Deputies later recovered a loaded firearm from the business that [Garcia] hid while he was running. [Garcia] was walking with two suitcases that were also later determined to be from a burglary that had just occurred in a nearby neighborhood,” the news release states.
Garcia, a Mojave resident, was arrested on suspicion of burglary, parole violation, possession of a loaded firearm, resisting arrest and other charges, according to the Kern County Sheriff’s news release.
