On 10/07/2018, at approximately 1500 hours, a Trinity River CHP officer attempted to make an enforcement stop on a pickup that was traveling westbound on SR-299, west of Trinity Dam Blvd, at a speed in excess of 100 MPH. In an attempt to evade the CHP, the pickup maintained speeds of 80 – 105 MPH before it turned left on Industrial Parkway, just east of Weaverville. When the pickup stopped at the end of Industrial Parkway the driver and occupants took foot bail. CHP caught and arrested two of the occupants; the driver is still at large.

UPDATE 10/11/2018:There were at least four subjects in the vehicle. Three of the subjects attempted to escape on foot and one remained seated in the right front passenger seat of the subject vehicle. CHP officers were able to apprehend two of the occupants as they fled (Donaldson and Grace). The party that remained in the vehicle was identified and confirmed to be the party who had rented the vehicle. He was released with the vehicle on scene. The suspected driver of the vehicle was determined to be Keeler Keebler Harris from Florida. This information was based on statements from the passengers and an identification found in the vehicle. A subsequent search by a CHP helicopter and ground units of the surrounding area was unsuccessful and the suspected driver remains outstanding. Harris is described as a black adult male, 5′-6″ tall and 170 pounds. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Harris is urged to notify the CHP at (530)623-3832.
