On Monday at 5:04 p.m., the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office (WCSO) notified Nevada Highway Patrol dispatch WCSO was in an active pursuit involving a silver Nissan sedan that was involved in a larceny case in Carson City.
Dominic Gonzalez, 23, of Newark, Calif., was arrested as a result of the incident while another suspect remained at large.
Nevada Highway Patrol joined with the Washoe County Sheriff’s Department as the Nissan traveled northbound on IR580 from the south end of Reno. Both agencies dropped off pursuit as the vehicle attained speeds upwards of 100 mph. As the Nissan continued northbound on IR580, it struck a vehicle causing a property damage crash in the area of Meadowood Mall. The Washoe County Sheriff’s Office helicopter (RAVEN) kept a visual on the vehicle as it made its way to the Grand Sierra Resort (GSR) parking lot off of Mill Street where the two male occupants of the vehicle fled on foot.
Both males proceeded to run into an entrance on the east side of the Grand Sierra Resort where one of the males was located and placed into custody by Nevada Highway Patrol. The other male was initially not located but was later observed by GSR security fleeing the scene in a maroon passenger car with silver rims that had arrived to pick him up. The individual still at large is reported as a white male adult last seen wearing a black shirt or zipper pullover and blue jeans.
Located inside of the abandoned Nissan were various items including sporting goods and alcohol that were all believed to be stolen.
Gonzalez is currently being held at the Washoe County Jail on a felony charge for possession of stolen property as well as reckless driving, driving without a driver’s license, fail to stop at the scene of an accident, fail to give information to party at accident and failure to obey a peace officer.
