Short white male? Is this the same guy who was robbed a bunch of Jack-in-the-Box restaurants along El Camino Real?
There is a surveillance photo here: Web Link
Could this also be the same person responsible for the recent rash of Alpine Hills club locker thefts?
It would be interesting to get Jim Gorman's perspective. Apparently the people at Ladera Oaks apprehended the kid and the sheriff deputy lost him. Could this be that the sheriff was too out of shape to keep up with the kid? A lot of deputy sheriffs could use a health club or works outs to keep in shape and there have been other incidents where they have lost their perp because they couldn't keep up.
I've got to agree somewhat with Neighbor. If your job involves running with a bulletproof vest, perhaps you should run with a bulletproof vest on a daily basis. I see the firefighters out running every day....
Also the description doesn't jibe with the photo. The description says WHITE TOP. The picture shows BLACK. The picture looks like every other teenager that lives around here. Probably another spoiled brat whose parents don't keep an eye on him.
I'd put the fitness of our Sheriff deputies up against any agency.
Just because you are in superb physical shape doesn't mean someone isn't going to get away occasionally.
I'll say it again since the editor has seen fit to delete my previous comment.
Neighbor: I suggest you try running in a bullet proof vest with ten pounds of gear hanging from your belt then come back here and complain about the deputies not catching someone that is totally jacked up on adrenaline and ISN'T wearing a vest and ten pounds of gear. Please, let us know how you do. When I did the job I worked out 6 days a week - 3 days cardio and 3 days weight training. 175 lbs and 6% body fat. Guess what? I wasn't always able to keep up with someone running away. Try it, I doubt YOU can do it.
I will admit I've seen a lot of out of shape deputies. I've also seen some who look to be in shape but admitted that they weren't, really - a lot of coffee, cigarettes & stress at work. But like MV said, even great in shape can lose people - especially if they're younger than you & super adrenalized.
It's over, he got away & either he'll get caught or he won't. I'm glad hte deputy wasn't hit.
