Oakland Man Arrested After Crash 

An Oakland man is behind bars on a $1.5 million dollar bail following a high-speed chase between Calaveras and Stockton. According to reports, Tuesday night shortly after 8 o’clock, Calaveras dispatch received a report and description of a suspicious vehicle near the Dollar General store in Valley Springs. According to the caller, four individuals associated with it were looking into other vehicles and appeared to be casing the store. As the deputies approached the scene the suspect car, a Lexus, took off with the deputies in pursuit. As the deputies pursued the vehicle they noted the license plate did not match as it was registered to an Isuzu SUV. CHP Officers took over the pursuit on Jack Tone Road, pursuing the Lexus until it crashed at Waterloo Road. There, CHP and San Joaquin deputies were able to take all four persons into custody. During the investigation, they determined the vehicle was stolen from an area outside Calaveras County. According to the occupants, they asked to be let out of the vehicle during the pursuit but the driver, 18 year-old Kevin Perry of Oakland, refused to stop. Perry was taken into custody and booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on a long list of felony charges.
