Vehicle Pursuit Arrest


On Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 11:20 p.m., a Ventura Police patrol officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle on Telephone Road at Kimball Street.  Prior to the stop, the vehicle was weaving back and forth across lane lines.  As the officer was walking up to talk with the driver, the suspect drove away.  The officer got back into her car and pursued after the suspect.  The suspect continued to evade officers for approximately 3 miles, driving in and out of neighborhoods in that area of town.  The suspect eventually stopped on Northbank Drive near Montgomery Avenue and was taken into custody by officers.
At the conclusion of the investigation, the suspect, Hector Zamora, 43, of Carpinteria, was determined to be driving his vehicle while being under the influence of alcohol. The suspect was booked into Ventura County Jail for evading officers and driving under the influence. No officers or civilians were injured in this incident.
