Ciera Stoelting, 21, of Santa Ana, fresh off a stint in state prison, was spotted one evening weaving down West McFadden in the city of Santa Ana. Police saw her, turned on their lights and, in a fit of great judgement, Ciera did what so many parolees do: she jammed the pedal to the floor and took off like a rabbit. After several miles of dangerous pursuit, she was arrested.
Shockingly, she was found to have narcotics in her car. Like so many before her, Stoelting chose the most dangerous path possible. Now, instead of a short recommitment for absconding parole, she is facing fresh felony evading and felony narcotics possession charges and will likely serve much more time.
The one good side to this story is that it didn’t end in tragedy with a traffic death. Always look on the bright side of life.
Depending on the amount of drugs found, suspects can be charged with either a misdemeanor or felony charge. They face serious jail time if convicted.
