Three people jailed in Glenn County high-speed chase
Three people were arrested Wednesday after leading a Glenn County sheriff's deputy on a high-speed pursuit near Orland.
Marcus Yocum, 29, of Oroville, was driving on Highway 32 at County Road S, where a deputy attempted to stop his vehicle for a code violation, officials said.
According to the Sheriff's Office, Yocum failed to yield and a pursuit ensued at speeds up to 100 mph.
Yocum, a felon on parole from Butte County, eventually yielded on County Road 27, but not before the occupants of the vehicle were seen tossing what was reported to be drugs and related paraphernalia out the windows of the vehicle, the Sheriff's Office said.
Yocum was arrested on suspicion of evading a peace officer with wanton disregard for safety, and driving while under the influence, sheriff's records state. He was booked into the Glenn County Jail on $38,000 bail.
Passenger Suzanna Lee Ponce, 23, of Orland, was arrested for suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia. She was booked into the Glenn County Jail on $3,000 bail.
Ponce was scheduled to stand trial Monday stemming from her April 2 arrest on suspicion of being in possession of stolen property, court records indicate.
Another passenger, Jason Michael Parrish, 30, of Oroville, was arrested for suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, according to the report. He was booked into the Glenn County Jail on $3,000 bail.
Parrish was arrested on drug charges in Butte County on June 30, court records indicate, and was scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 8.
