Sacramento Man on the Run No Match for Police K-9s

A man on the lam over the weekend was no match for Sacramento K-9 forces.

Smashing into parked cars and multiple neighborhood mailboxes, a reported parolee-at-large was finally taken into custody by police after being found hiding out in a North Sacramento garage.

It began with a simple traffic stop.

"It was a vehicle stop that officers went to make at El Camino and Lexington," Sacramento Police Spokeswoman Michele Gigante said. 

Gigante says Jonathan Lamb chose not to stop -- instead leading officers on a two minute chase near homes in the 1900 block neighborhood of Juliesse Avenue.

After almost hitting young children, which was caught on a neighborhood surveillance tape, Lamb abandoned his car and took off on foot with police pursuing. 

"We had aerial units involved, K-9s involved, and then ground units involved, as well," Gigante said. 

That pursuit lasted more than two hours before K-9 units found Lamb hiding in a garage and police took him into custody.

Now, Lamb faces multiple charges including possession of a stolen vehicle, violation of parole, hit and run, the vehicle pursuit and, finally, running from police.
