The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office says 27 year-old Derrick Horn led officers on a high speed chase with a stolen car through Cottonwood Friday evening.
During a routine traffic stop around 5:15 p.m., Horn refused to pull over and sped off. He reportedly reached speeds of up to 80 miles-an-hour before ditching the car and running by foot. Horn was with another man who ran off as well.
An hour later, deputies received calls from citizens in the area that saw Horn running in their neighborhood. Horn was booked for several felony charges including evading officers, leading officers on a vehicle pursuit and possession of stolen property.
Deputies are still searching for the second suspect in the car, if you know anything contact their office.
