On the morning of Thursday, January 5th, deputies received information that 50 year-old Phelan resident, Charles Vaughn, had outstanding warrants and was at a home in the 9400 block of Centola Road in Phelan.
When deputies arrived at the location, they found Vaughn at the residence and in a stolen vehicle. He immediately fled the scene in the stolen vehicle and led deputies on a car pursuit while driving at high rates of speed with disregard for public safety. The approximately 3 mile pursuit ended when Vaughn’s vehicle collided with a fence on the Northwest corner of Nielson Road and Monte Vista. After the crash, Vaughn then fled on foot and hid under a trailer that was located on the property. A Fontana Police Department K-9 Unit also responded to the scene to assist with the arrest and after approximately 2 hours, Vaughn finally surrendered and was taken into custody.
Vaughn was arrested and booked at High Desert Detention Center for possession of stolen property, felony evading and for an outstanding warrant. This investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact Deputy V. Stone, at Victor Valley Sheriff’s Station 760-552-6800. Callers can remain anonymous and contact We-Tip at 800-78CRIME or www.wetip.com.
