• Pacific Grove Man Arrested on Multiple Charges After High-Speed Chase

    An unemployed Pacific Grove man, Jeffrey Rutt, 23, was arrested overnight by sheriff’s deputies after a high-speed chase resulted in a crash. Weapons, drugs, and stolen property were found in his vehicle.

    Residents on San Benancio Road in Salinas reported a thin, white male stealing from unlocked vehicles and then leaving in a Silver Honda, which was spotted later on Corral de Tierra. Deputies attempted a traffic stop but Rutt sped away with patrol vehicles in pursuit. He crashed into a creek at Corral de Tierra and Highway 68. Rutt attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended a short distance later.

    He had an outstanding felony warrant. A search of his vehicle produced drugs, stolen property including three firearms that had been reported stolen from the area on a previous date. A search of his Pacific Grove home produced additional property from the coast area.

    Included in the items found in his possession were firefighter gear, electronics, jewelry, and weapons (three shotguns, ammunition, two stun guns, knives and a machete) as well as drugs.

    Rutt was transported to a hospital from the scene via ambulance but has since been transferred to the county jail.
