Deputies Arrest Motorcycle Chase Escapee
San Andreas, CA — An inmate on the lam is back in jail with a $350,000 bail.
According to Calaveras County Sheriff’s officials, 33-year-old Brian Dehart of San Andreas was arrested Friday in San Andreas and taken into custody for several outstanding warrants as well a recent criminal act during which he potentially endangered the life of his motorcycle passenger.
As reported here, deputies were seeking Dehart following a high-speed motorcycle chase last week on Highway 12 just east of Toyon, between San Andreas and Valley Springs.
Due to the COVID-19 “zero bail” order still in effect, officials state that he was set to be booked and released again back into the public.
But because deputies believed he posed a significant danger to the public due to the multiple pending cases against him and the recent vehicle pursuit, they filed a request for a bail increase, which was approved by Superior Court Judge Healy. He currently remains in the Calaveras County Jail.
