ATASCADERO — One individual was arrested following a vehicle pursuit through Highway 101 on the afternoon of Sunday, Oct. 2.

Javier Alexander Perez-Andrade (27) of San Luis Obispo was arrested for two felonies: evading of a peace officer and child endangerment.

According to Atascadero Police Department (APD), on Sunday at 12:45 p.m., the Paso Robles Police Department (PRPD) notified the California Highway Patrol (CHP) of a stolen white 2010 Honda Odyssey in their city approximately ten minutes earlier. The vehicle was determined to have been stolen in Santa Maria the previous day.   


APD reported they located the vehicle traveling on south Highway 101 near San Ramon Road and initiated a traffic stop which ensued in a vehicle pursuit on Highway 101 with speeds exceeding 100 MPH. The vehicle exited the freeway in San Luis Obispo and was involved in a non-injury traffic collision that is being investigated by the San Luis Obispo Police Department. 

The vehicle continued north on Highway 1 and came to a stop after becoming disabled near the California Men’s Colony. 

Two juveniles, ages 16 and 17, were occupants in the stolen vehicle and were turned over to responsible parties. As a result, Perez-Andrade was also charged with two counts of felony child endangerment. He was transported to the San Luis Obispo County Jail and is being held on $100,000 bail.
