Deputies responded to an Automated License Plate Reader (ALPR) hit of a stolen vehicle entering the city on Oak Glen Road. Deputies located the stolen vehicle in the Vons parking lot with four people inside it. As deputies approached the vehicle, a female occupant exited, and the driver fled. Deputies pursued the stolen vehicle to the intersection of Bryant Street and Panorama Street where the driver slid on the wet road and collided with a rock wall. Three suspects fled from the vehicle. Two of the suspects, Bradley Entwistle, 24, of Yucaipa and Kyle Houser, 34, transient, were caught immediately by pursuing deputies. The driver hid in the backyard of a nearby residence while deputies surrounded the area. Bloodhound Nyx from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department responded and tracked the final suspect, Robert Harder, 25, transient, to his hiding spot where deputies took him into custody without incident.
Harder was booked on vehicle theft and evading charges, as well as on terms of violating his parole. He is being held without bail. Entwistle was booked on stolen property charges and Houser was booked for resisting / obstructing a peace office.
