Suspect arrested after leading BRPD on multi-parish chase in stolen vehicle Tuesday
BATON ROUGE - Baton Rouge Police have arrested a man following a Tuesday night chase that started in East Baton Rouge Parish and ended in Tangipahoa Parish.
The suspect, identified as Jay Gonzales, fled from police on the interstate around 11:30 p.m. With the help of multiple law enforcement agencies, police were able to capture Gonzales when he made it to Tangipahoa Parish.
Arrest records state Gonzales admitted he ran from officers because he was on parole for previous charges stemming from prior carjackings, burglaries and a kidnapping.
Gonzales was booked into the TPSO jail as a fugitive and then released to BRPD so he could be booked in East Baton Rouge Parish. Gonzales was charged with theft of a motor vehicle, flight from an officer, speeding, reckless operation, and not having a driver's license.
WBRZ has reached out to authorities for a photo of Gonzales.
