Location: N. MainSt/Navajo Dr
An officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a gold colored Saturn at North Main Street and Alvin Drive for expired registration. The Saturn immediately drove off at a high rate of speed southbound on North Main Street. At Navajo Drive the Saturn shifted into the oncoming lanes, driving southbound in the northbound lanes, barely missing several cars coming in the opposite direction. The vehicle turned left onto Chaparral Street heading toward North Salinas High School. The officer cancelled the pursuit due to the inherent danger to children walking to school.
The vehicle turned southbound onto Linwood Drive approaching El Gabilan School. The vehicle passed the school at a high rate of speed, driving on the wrong side of the raised divider and almost hitting another car head on. Just after passing the school, the driver threw a loaded .357 magnum handgun out of the window onto the street, in plain view of those walking to school. Police recovered the handgun and the vehicle was found running and abandoned on the 1100 block of Granada Ave. A canine picked up the scent which lead to a broken fence board leading to a backyard on the100 block Santa Teresa Avenue. The canine immediately alerted to an outside crawl space opening that led underneath the house.
After several commands were given to come out and with no response, the canine was sent in. The dog immediately located Robert Glaze (29) and Patricia Anne Mayor (26) hiding underneath the house. The dog was able to convince the suspects to exit and both were taken into custody. Mayor had a minor puncture wound to her leg from where the canine held onto her. Mayor was treated and released at Natividad Medical Center and cited for resisting arrest and delaying a peace officer. Glaze was lodged into Monterey County Jail for the felony evading with wanton disregard for the safety of others as well as several gun charges.
