Two men arrested in Santa Margarita yesterday, after a chase through town.
The sheriff’s special enforcement detail served a high risk search warrant at a home in the 4100 block of Stagecoach Canyon road around 6:00 yesterday morning. They were trying to locate 28-year-old Max Aaron Gerarden, who is wanted on a variety of charges, including battery with serious bodily injury.
When the SED team tried to serve the search warrant, Gerarden fled the location in a vehicle. Deputies gave pursuit. They were aided by a CHP airplane. The pursuit ended about five minutes later on Goldie Lane in Santa Margarita, where Gerarden ran from the vehicle. A search located the suspect and took him into custody.
At the same location, another wanted suspect was taken into custody for violating his post release supervision. He’s identified as 26-year-old Daniel Jay Romo, also of Santa Margarita.
