Last week, law enforcement caught a suspect in a Sacramento, California bank robbery after stopping the suspect’s car for a minor traffic violation. The suspect, Erick Dinse, refused to stop for a South Dakota trooper who tried to pull him over for speeding. Eventually, because Dinse fled, the Highway Patrol had to resort to using road spikes to stop the suspect’s car.
After finally stopping Dinse, the Trooper discovered that Dinse was driving under the influence of alcohol. According to the Highway Patrol, Dinse had also stolen the license plates on his car and had an outstanding warrant for the California bank robbery. Authorities charged Dinse with DUI, eluding police, possession of stolen property, driving without a license, and being a fugitive from justice, and are awaiting to extradite him to California.
