Man Allegedly Leads Deputies on Hour-Long, High-Speed Chase Through Multiple Counties

SACRAMENTO COUNTY (CBS13) - A man led deputies on a high-speed, hour-long chase that ended in Sacramento County, authorities say.

On April 3 at 11:23 p.m., a Placer County deputy tried to conduct a traffic stop on South Auburn Street in Colfax. The car did not stop and drove away at a high rate of speed, according to Placer County Sheriff's Office.

During the chase, the driver allegedly hit speeds of 120 miles per hour, driving over double yellow lines, into oncoming traffic.

The roughly hour-long pursuit ended in Sacramento County when the suspect's vehicle crashed into a tree and he ran away.

Through the use of the California Highway Patrol's Air 21 helicopter and a K-9 unit, 33-year-old Thomas Reynolds was taken into custody.

After performing multiple searches, deputies found a methamphetamine pipe in his sock and screwdrivers, wrenches, and sockets in his backpack.

Deputies also found more methamphetamine pipes and a debit card that belonged to someone else.

Reynolds was arrested on suspicion of evading a peace officer, possession of burglary tools, possession of drug paraphernalia, obstructing a peace officer, and violating his parole conditions.
