REDDING, Calif. - The Shasta County District Attorney says a known drug dealer has pleaded guilty to trying to hit a police officer with his car during a chase.
The District Attorney says Redding Police Officers tried to approach Robert Cronin-Mills at a Downtown Redding motel on Dec. 3, 2018, for suspected drug crimes. Prosecutors say Cronin-Mills sped off, trying to hit several officers as he fled. He later crashed into four cars before police captured him. Police say he was carrying thousands of dollars in cash, and a large amount of heroin.
The District Attorney says Cronin-Mills pled guilty to assault with a deadly weapon against a police officer, evading law enforcement with reckless disregard for the safety of others, transportation of cocaine for sale, and resisting arrest.
Prosecutors expect Cronin-Mills to be sentenced to seven years in state prison on Feb. 13, 2019.
