Two teenagers arrested following pusuit in Rancho Cordova

Two teenagers have been arrested after leading officers on a pursuit through Rancho Cordova early Wednesday morning.

Abraham Lopez (pictured), 18, and a 17-year-old youth were arrested on suspicion of felony evasion of a peace officer, unlawful possession of a concealed, loaded firearm and resisting arrest.

The incident began shortly after 1:30 a.m., when a Rancho Cordova police officer attempted to stop a vehicle in the area of Paseo Drive and Folsom Boulevard. The driver sped away and led officers on a pursuit that lasted several minutes and reached speeds of approximately 60 mph, according to a Rancho Cordova Police Department news release.Lopez.jpg

During the pursuit, a male passenger fell out of the vehicle and eluded capture as officers continued to pursue the vehicle.

When the pursuit ended, Lopez ran away on foot but was captured about 30 minutes later. The 17-year-old, who was the driver, was immediately taken into custody. Police said he and Lopez were found to be in possession of firearms.

The third occupant was not located.

Lopez was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail, where he is being held on $10,000 bail. The 17-year-old was booked into Sacramento County Juvenile Hall.
