BULLHEAD CITY–A local man was arrested Tuesday afternoon after he allegedly fled from police.
Pablo Jesus Solis Gonzales, 27, is facing a charge of unlawful flight from pursing law enforcement after he allegedly snatched a purse in Laughlin and fled when officers attempted to pull him over.
Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said Las Vegas Metro requested assistance from Bullhead City Police officers to stop a suspect who was reportedly involved in a purse snatching incident in Laughlin.
“Metro was following him in an unmarked vehicle and when Bullhead City Police officers got near Gonzales, he started to evade and ran from police,” said Fromelt.
Gonzales eventually stopped at the intersection of Ramar Road and Highway 95. He was taken into custody without further incident.
A female passenger was detained for questioning and later released.
The suspect’s mother, who was also a passenger in the vehicle, was given a ride home, said Fromelt.
Gonzales was taken to the Mohave County jail on the above charges and for a misdemeanor warrant for failure to pay fines.
