Officers were in the area of Freedom Parkway and Cougar when they observed a Silver 2009 Toyota Tundra. They attempted to conduct a traffic stop of the vehicle for minor vehicle code violations. The driver, later identified as Luis Edgar Garcia (29), a gang member, did not yield and a vehicle pursuit was initiated. Garcia's vehicle stalled on Freedom Parkway and he would not obey the officers' commands to exit the vehicle. Garcia was eventually able to get his vehicle to start and the pursuit was re-initiated. The pursuit ended on Bobcat and Antelope Drive when Garcia exited his vehicle and immediately ran. A perimeter was established and Garcia was seen going into a relative's house on the 1500 block of Antelope Drive. Officers also believed Garcia was possibly armed with a handgun. The Salinas Police Department SWAT team was called to assist. For approximately 7 hours, Officers used a P.A. system to hail into the house to get Garcia to come out and surrender. After recieving no response from inside the house, SWAT entered and located Garcia hiding in the attic. He was taken into custody.
Garcia was booked into the Monterey County Jail for multiple charges.
