California man arrested on several felony charges after 100 mph chase in Floyd County

According to a Floyd County Police department incident report, on September 27th, at around 2:04 AM, Officer Stanfield and Officer Sangphim were running stationary radar on GA-1 at the GA-1 loop. Officer Stanfield activated his front radar antennae after noticing a speeding vehicle approaching. The vehicle showed 103 mph. Both officers attempted to stop the vehicle. The vehicle, later identified to be driven by Jose Alfredo Orosco, 29 of Sun Valley, California, did not slow down and continue to drive at a very high rate of speed. Orosco turned onto Booger Hollow, where Officer Sangphim took the lead and advised he was traveling 90 mph on Booger Hollow. While approaching the corner at 1150 Booger Hollow Road, Orosco crashed out. Officer Sangphim observed two males run west onto the property of where the vehicle crashed. Officer Stanfield gave chase and heard someone moving in the wood line. Officer Stanfield reported, "[I] approached where [I] observed the male, and gave commands to stop running. "[I] drew my service weapon, and aimed it toward the male", Officer Stanfield reported. Orosco complied with orders and was taken into custody while Officer Sangphim covered for the officer. Orosco was escorted out of the woods and into a patrol vehicle. Deputy Snyder with the Floyd County Sheriff’s office arrived on scene with his K9 partner, and he began a track with his K9. The track was unsuccessful, and the second suspect was not captured. Deputy Snyder assisted officers in searching around the vehicle. A glass smoking device was found in front of the front passenger tire, and a white crystal substance was found in front of a mailbox near where Orosco was seen running. A small bag with suspected marijuana was also found in the cupholder as well. There were numerous open alcoholic bottles on the floor of the vehicle on the driver's side as well. Officer also located a Smith & Wesson. Orosco was uncooperative with information and refused to speak with officers when he was read his Miranda rights. Orosco was transported to the Floyd County Jail charged with possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of drug related objects, possession of meth, speeding, open container, and attempting to elude police.
