Vallejo police and the Solano County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man for vehicle theft after a pursuit early Tuesday morning, a sheriff’s deputy said. Deputies Ryan McEachern and Daniel Stoddard saw a silver 1984 Toyota Camry in the area of Grennan and Webb streets in Vallejo around 1 a.m. The vehicle had been reported stolen to BART police in Concord, Deputy Daryl Snedeker said.
As deputies waited for Vallejo police to arrive, the Toyota driver, later identified as Raykheem Guthery, 21, of Vallejo, sped away at about 50 mph and violated several traffic laws on residential streets, Snedeker said. After a brief pursuit, Guthery got out of the Toyota while it was still rolling. The car stopped when it hit a fence at a residence on Grennan Court, Snedeker said.
Police officers and deputies searched for Guthery and found him hiding in a garbage can in front of a residence in the 2700 block of Georgia Street, about a quarter-mile away from the Toyota, Snedeker said. Guthery was arrested on felony charges of vehicle theft, evading police, receiving stolen property, and two warrants for parole violations. He also was arrested for misdemeanor charges of hit-and-run causing property damage and resisting arrest. Guthery was booked in the Solano County Jail under no bail and will be arraigned Thursday afternoon in Solano County Superior Court.
