Suspect in yesterday's search in the Vine Way/Darling Way area arrested

Early this morning, Roseville officers arrested a man suspected of fleeing from officers in a stolen car yesterday morning.  At 6:49 a.m. Tuesday, a man stole a Mercedes sedan from the 1200 block of Plumber Way.  A few minutes later, officers saw the stolen vehicle speeding down Vernon Street. The driver led officers on a short pursuit, then abandoned the stolen car on Darling Way at Vine Way, and fled on foot.  Many officers from Roseville and neighboring law enforcement agencies surrounded the area and searched through the neighborhood and the creek bed area, but were unable to find the suspect.  Two schools were locked down during the search.

Patrol officers continued to investigate, and identified a suspect.  Early this morning, officers arrested 29-year-old Zechariah Austin Lee at his home in Citrus Heights on suspicion of evading police officers with disregard for public safety, the theft and possession of a stolen vehicle, and a Sacramento County warrant for violating the terms of his post-release community supervision.  He's being held without bail in the Placer County Jail.  The department's press release and booking photo are posted on our website.
