STOCKTON (CBS13) – A man who led officers on both a car and foot chase was arrested after being found in possession of over one pound of methamphetamine, a gun and heroin, the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office said on Thursday.
Mikal Hall, 43, faces charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, possession of controlled substance while armed, reckless evading, possession of meth for sale and a no-bail warrant, authorities said.
Hall crashed into a tree in the area of Morada Lane and Alhambra Avenue on Tuesday after law enforcement attempted to pull him over as he was leaving a motel parking lot. He then ran away from authorities on foot.
The sheriff’s office said one pound of meth was found in the area of the crash.
Following the crash, a concerned citizen reported a suspicious person matching Hall’s description in the area of Hildreth Lane and Alhambra Avenue, authorities said. The suspect was identified as Hall by responding law enforcement and he was taken into custody without incident.
Investigators said they learned Hall was staying at the motel he was seen leaving. A search of his room uncovered 274 additional grams of meth, heroin, marijuana and over $8,500 in cash.
