Two Arrests Involving Methamphetamine Over the Weekend

San Andreas, CA...On October 17th, 2020, at about 12:20 AM, a new deputy, that recently graduated the training program attempted to conduct a traffic enforcement stop on Hwy 4 near Six Mile Rd., just east of Angels Camp. The deputy observed a vehicle driving recklessly and passing other vehicles over a double solid line. The deputy activated the patrol vehicle’s emergency lighting (red and blue lights); however, the driver of the vehicle failed to yield to the deputy. The suspect driver attempted to evade by turning onto Six Mile Rd. and accelerating to a high rate of speed. The deputy pursued the vehicle into Murphy’s, then west down Murphy’s Grade Rd. While pursuing the vehicle, other units from the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office and the California Highway Patrol were maneuvering into a position to intersect the suspect.

CHP deployed a spike strip at Murphy’s Grade Rd and Hwy 49, Angels Camp. The suspect vehicle ran over the spike strips causing severe damage to his tires; however, he continued to flee North on Hwy 49. The suspect driver, later identified as (SA) Anthony Lee Wilson Ohare (28 years, old Sonora), eventually stopped on Hwy 49 near the Mark Twain Center in Angels Camp. Once the vehicle had stopped, Ohare ran from the vehicle on foot. Deputies chased Ohare to the 300 block of North Main St, where he was subsequently taken into custody.

Ohare was arrested and transported to the Calaveras County Jail. Ohare was charged with felony evading arrest, resisting arrest, and possession of methamphetamine. Ohare was also booked on two warrants from Tuolumne County (evading arrest and vehicle theft) and a warrant from Nye County, Nevada. He is being held with a total bail of $155,000.

On October 18, 2020, at about 12:25 AM, deputies responded to a report of a physical fight near the 300 block of West St. Charles St., San Andreas. Upon arrival, deputies contacted suspect Travis William Key (41 years old San Andreas). During the investigation, Key was found to be in possession of methamphetamine. Suspect Travis William Key was issued a citation for possession of methamphetamine (misdemeanor) and released at the scene.

Since January 2020, The Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office has investigated 32 cases where suspects were issued citations or arrested for possession of methamphetamine.

Lucky nobody got killed! High speed chase could end in a fatality. Mandatory prison for evading but start with a public cane party.

    Dang, going all the way across six mile road, kudos to both suspect and rookie. Then down murphys grade road, very impressed indeed. Spike strips, oops, Houdini can’t get past that! At least, all are safe.

      It's the Calif, Democrat way. It's too expensive to arrest the addicts and keep them in jail for processing. This is what they've done in Portland and Seattle. They've done this for some time now, and since there real no consequence for their actions, the police say users, pushers, gangs and crime have come in for their looking the other way.
      A lesson learned? Nope, no one is learning anything but the criminal. He knows where to set up his business, just look at the illegal pot farms here. How many times has that place in Railroad Flats been busted before? Give'em a ticket Danko

        Yes, to think we could have known who the legal growers were and would be paying taxes. Instead, the SO (and county's) budget is continuously drained in busting illegal grows.

          So rude of you. FYI illegal grows are happening all over regardless if the cities or counties allow legal growing or not. Smoke on and shoot up imbecile.

Good work, new guy! (Also, there isn't an apostrophe in the town name "Murphys" nor the road, "Murphys Grade Road."
