CHICO, Calif.- Chico police said they arrested two convicted felons on gun charges after chasing them down Monday morning.

Around 1:42 a.m., officers said they tried to stop a car for speeding on E. 9th Street at the Highway 99 overpass.

The driver would not pull over and officers pursued the car to Humboldt Avenue at Bartlett Street. The suspect tried to escape on foot, jumping out of the car while it was still moving. An officer began to run after the suspect even as he jumped over fences,

During the chase, police said the suspect, David Pacheco, dropped a gun. When the officer caught up to him, he found Pacheco in possession of cocaine, ecstasy and psilocybin mushrooms.

Pacheco was then arrested on multiple charges including reckless evading, possessing a gun and ammunition, having drugs intended for sale and resisting arrest.

Officers say the passenger in the car, Charles Augmon, also a convicted felon, took over driving when Pacheco jumped out of the car. However, officers stopped him and he was arrested when they found a second gun and more ammunition.

Both Pacheco and Augmon were booked into the Butte County Jail.

We began the new week with plenty of sunshine and heat around northern California, but more heat, more wind and more potential fire danger are ahead for our area.
