On 10-12-2016 at 3:40 p.m., a Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant was patrolling in the 3100 block of Redwood Drive, Redway. The Sergeant observed a black Harley Davidson motorcycle being driven by Jesse Lee Surbrugg (age 37). The Sergeant knew that Surbrugg has a felony warrant for weapons violations.
The Sergeant attempted to conduct a traffic enforcement stop on Surbrugg at the intersection of Redwood Drive and Redway Drive. Surbrugg failed to yield and vehicle pursuit was initiated. The pursuit continued through residential streets, and due to public safety concerns, and Surbrugg’s erratic driving, the pursuit was terminated.
A short time later, Sheriff’s Deputies located Surbrugg who was now in the Evergreen Business Park. Surbrugg hid his motorcycle and then ran into a storage locker located in the 1200 block of Evergreen Road, Garberville. Deputies gave chase and were able to successfully take Surbrugg into custody without further incident.
Surbrugg was subsequently transported to the Humboldt County Correctional Facility for booking. Surbrugg was booked on his felony warrant, and fresh charges of felony evasion and driving on a suspended license.
Anyone with information for the Sheriff’s Office regarding this case or related criminal activity is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Sheriff’s Office Crime Tip line at 707-268-2539.
