Law enforcement agencies found a stolen vehicle suspect hiding in a Vallejo trash can early Tuesday, police said.
The incident began just after 1 a.m. when a Solano County Sheriff's deputy spotted a stolen 1989 silver Toyota Camry near Grennan Drive and Webb Street, Deputy Daryl Snedeker said.
The car was reported stolen to BART police from Concord on Sept. 15.
Deputies Ryan McEachern and Daniel Stoddard waited for Vallejo police officers to back them up before tryng to stop the stolen car, Snedeker said.
However, the Camry took off, leading the officers on a pursuit through residential areas at speeds up to 50 miles per hour, Snedeker said.
The driver then bailed out of the car while it was still moving and fled. The car kept going, damaging a cyclone fence of a residence as it came to a stop on Grennan Court, Vallejo police said.
Vallejo police and deputies established a perimeter, and K-9 units from both Vallejo and the California Highway Patrol were deployed in an attempt to locate the suspect. A CHP helicopter also assisted in the search, Vallejo police said.
Officers eventually found the suspect hiding in a garbage can in front of a house in the 2700 block of Georgia Street, Snedeker said.
Arrested was Raykheem Guthery, 21, of Vallejo on suspicion of motor vehicle theft, evading police, receiving stolen property, hit-and-run causing property damage and resisting arrest. Additionally, Guthery was wanted on two outstanding warrants for parole violation.
Guthery is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
