Two attempted burglary suspects were arrested this afternoon after a high-speed chase in west Sonoma County, a sheriff’s lieutenant said. The male suspects, Kelly Hall, a 43-year-old transient, and Noe Jacob, 39, of Santa Rosa, were interrupted while trying to break into a garage at a residence in the 4600 block of Sunland Avenue in southwest Santa Rosa around 6:40 a.m., Lt. Steve Brown said.
The resident informed the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office the men fled in a red Mustang, Brown said. Deputies spotted the car about an hour later in the area of Stony Point Road and Arlington Avenue. When the deputies tried to stop the Mustang, the suspects fled south on Stony Point Road, Brown said. Petaluma police and the California Highway Patrol joined the pursuit that reached speeds between 60 and 110 mph, Brown said.
Petaluma police laid spike strips on Stony Point Road near Denman Road, but the suspects avoided them. The Mustang then crashed on Stony Point Road near Petaluma Boulevard North, Brown said. Petaluma police used a technique to disable the suspect’s vehicle and the men were taken into custody, Brown said.
A sheriff’s deputy on the scene believed Kelly resembled a suspect in a robbery at the Stony Point Road Market on May 11, and Kelly was later positively identified as the suspect, Brown said. Kelly was booked in the Sonoma County jail on suspicion of robbery and attempted burglary, and Jacob was booked on suspicion of attempted burglary and evading police. Both men are scheduled to be arraigned Friday afternoon.
