REDDING, Calif - The Redding Police Department used CHP air operations to catch a suspect involved in a high-speed pursuit on Buenaventura Boulevard near Placer Street.

According to CHP, RPD initiated a pursuit of a motorcycle near that intersection but quickly canceled the pursuit, due to the driver’s reckless behavior.

CHP’s “H-16” aircrew was overhead the area within two minutes, “H-16” then found the motorcycle on Teton Drive and followed it to Oconner Avenue, according to CHP.

Moments later, the suspect abandoned the bike in a “green belt” and ran on foot into a residence, CHP said.
