Woman leads Deputies on chase through Seaside and Moss Landing

MONTEREY, Calif. - One woman is in jail after leading area law enforcement officers on a chase this weekend.

A Monterey County Sheriff's Office Deputy tried to contact Rikki Lee Warren about a warrant she had for her arrest. When the Deputy approached Warren, he says she put her vehicle in drive and moved towards the Deputy, who was able to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.

When Warren sped off, the Deputy began to chase the vehicle. Deputies say Warren reached speeds over 90 MPH on Carmel Valley Road, leading the pursuit to be called off due to a public safety concern.

Other Deputies made their way to the area when Warren was spotted on Highway 1 headed through Seaside, Marina, Castroville and Moss Landing, maintaining her high speeds of over 90 MPH.

Two hours later, two people called into emergency communications with a tip.

With the coordinated effort of a motorcycle Officer from CHP and several Deputies, Warren was found hiding in a residence off of Vierra Canyon Road.

The owner of the BMW Warren was driving was tracked down in Georgia away on Military training. He had reported his vehicle as stolen.

Warren was taken to the Monterey County Jail. No Deputies or CHP Officers were injured in the incident.

The Office thanks everyone who helped locate Warren and bring her into custody.
