Los Angeles: On October 28, 2021, Pasadena Police Department assisted the Los Angeles Police Department in identifying 22-year-old Carlos Sanchez-Reyez, of Los Angeles, as the driver of the severe injury hit-and-run. The information was passed on through an internal wanted bulletin to all patrol officers.

On December 12, 2021, at around 4:50 p.m., a 2014 Ford Explorer was stolen from the 3300 block of Bagly Avenue, in West Los Angeles Division. When the registered owner realized their Explorer was stolen, the owner remembered that he left his cellular phone in the Explorer, which was equipped with a tracker, and began to track it. The cellular phone pinged in the area of Larga Avenue and Fletcher Drive, in Northeast Division. The owner called 9-1-1, and Northeast Patrol Units and an Air Unit were dispatched to the area.

The Air Unit located the Explorer and directed patrol units to the location. The patrol units began to follow the Explorer in the area of Ripple Street and Rosanna Street, the officers activated their red light and siren and attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the Explorer. The driver refused to yield to patrol units and began to conduct evasive maneuvers to elude the patrol units and avoid arrest.

The patrol units were now in pursuit of the Explorer. The pursuit traversed throughout the neighborhood where the driver drove in an unsafe speed, failed to stop for several “Stop” signs, and almost collided with a vehicle. The driver demonstrated a wanton disregard for public safety.

The pursuit terminated in the 2400 block of Dallas Street due to the street being a dead end. The driver surrendered to the officers without incident. Officers recognized the driver as Carlos Sanchez-Reyez from the internal wanted bulletin.

Sanchez-Reyez was arrested and booked for California Vehicle Code, 2800.2(a) Felony Evading, Booking No. 6292101, and was additionally booked on 2-Felony Probation Violation warrant, 1-Felony warrant for fraud from the Pasadena Court, Case No. PASGA107242. Sanchez-Reyez probation was also revoked, and his current bail is, “No Bail.” He is housed at the Los Angeles Police Department – Metropolitan Detention Center. He is scheduled to arraigned today at the Clara Foltz Criminal Justice Center, 210 West Temple Street, in Department 30.
