This week we have a criminal alien of the week to report to your radio listeners.
Monday, October 17th, the Salem Police Department (SPD) officers were involved in a high speed car chase and foot pursuit which included police dogs.
During pursuit, the man fleeing the police crashed his car.
Prior to the man’s capture, police searching the crashed car discovered a loaded AK-47 rifle, extra magazines, and ammunition.
Police dog’s tracked the man down; when he resisted arrest, he was rewarded for his unruly behavior with multiple dog bites.
To patch up the puncher wounds, police transported the man to the hospital to receive medical treatment.
At the time of his initial arrest, the man lied about his true identity.
After further investigation, police officers determined the person in their custody was actually previously convicted felon Jacinto Duran-Zepeda. In addition, police determined Duran-Zepeda had two outstanding warrants, one for drug possession and one for failing to appear in court, out of Polk County.
While in custody, after the fact, Duran-Zepeda told police officials that he had a handgun in his possession that he threw away during foot pursuit by police officers.
Now incarcerated at the Marion County Correctional Facility in Salem, Jacinto Duran-Zepeda has been charged with two counts eluding, hit-and-run, possession and delivery of methamphetamine, reckless driving, driving under the influence of intoxicants, giving false information, felon in possession of a firearm, identity theft, and ICE hold.
