Menlo Park police kicked off a search for the suspect, setting up a perimeter around Carlton and Hamilton avenues, Ivy Drive and Willow Road. Helping out: East Bay Regional Park's helicopter, the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office and Palo Alto police. Residents were asked to stay indoors.
Officers found the East Palo Alto resident in a garage in the 1300 block of Madera Avenue, police announced. He was arrested on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, assault with a deadly weapon, felony hit and run, and resisting/obstructing a police officer.
Mr. Jimenez pleaded not guilty in San Mateo County Superior Court on Nov. 2. Charges stemming from the Menlo Park chase are not the only legal problems he faces at the moment; the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service also plans to deport the man back to his native country of Mexico, according to sheriff's spokeswoman Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt.
The Menlo Park Police Department asks that anyone with information about the incident call them at 330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at 330-6395.
