Robbery, pursuit suspect arrested

Chino police arrested a 24-year-old Ontario man late Sunday afternoon after a theft took place at a shoe store. A pursuit ended on the Grove Avenue onramp of the 60 Freeway in Ontario.

Samuel Mora is being held without bail at the West Valley Detention Center on suspicion of felony evading, possession of drug materials, petty theft and a parole violation, according to San Bernardino County jail records.

Police were called at 5:23 p.m. to the Famous Footwear at 3857 Grand Ave. on a report of a theft, learning two people fled in a vehicle, said Sgt. Jesus Jacquez.

“Officers attempted to stop the car, however, the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed,” the sergeant said. “A vehicle pursuit was initiated but was quickly terminated due to public safety concerns.”

A short time later, officers tried to stop the car at Riverside Drive and Magnolia Avenue, but again, the driver fled.

After the car stopped on the Grove Avenue onramp, police were able to take the front passenger into custody. 

The passenger was not identified but was booked into jail on suspicion of petty theft.

“The driver fled on foot and was quickly apprehended by responding officers,” Sgt. Jacquez said. Items taken during the theft were found inside the car and returned to the shoe store, he said.

Two arrested after crash in Chino

Chino police jailed two men last Saturday afternoon after a hit-and-run crash where one suspect later pointed a handgun at the other driver.

Juan Albarran, 44, of Chino, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a firearm, police said. 

The other driver, who was not identified, was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run.

Officers learned the unidentified man was driving a car in the 4600 block of Terry Avenue in Chino, struck a vehicle and left the scene, Sgt. Jesus Jacquez said. 

“The vehicle belonged to one of Mr. Albarran’s relatives, so he followed the victim as he drove away,” Sgt. Jacquez said. “When the victim arrived home, Mr. Albarran produced a handgun and pointed it at him.”

Relatives of Mr. Albarran were able to pull the handgun from him, and one of them drove the gun back to a house to secure the weapon in a room, the sergeant said.

“Officers later responded to the residence to recover the firearm,” Sgt. Jacquez said.

He added Mr. Albarran was found to be a gang member from Los Angeles County and is a convicted felon.
