Local News

A  32  year-old  woman  was  arrested  after  she  led  Santa Cruz  County  Sheriff’s  deputies  on  a chase  through  the  Santa  Cruz  Mountains  on Monday.     Samantha  Vetter  is  believed  to  have  broken  into  a  home  on  the  8-thousand  block  of  Highway  9,  before   deputies  arrived  and  she  fled  in  a  vehicle  she  stole  from  the home’s  garage.     She  was  later  arrested  in  the  Happy  Valley  area  of  Santa  Cruz,  after  she  went  door-to-door  there  asking for  gasoline  for  her  car.  Vetter  faces  a  variety  of  charges  that include  burglary  and  vehicle  theft,  as  well  as  being  a  felon  in  possession  of  a  firearm,  and  carrying  a  loaded  firearm.

Another  woman  faces  a  charge  of  assaulting  an  arresting  officer.    This  time  the  arrest  was  in  Soquel,  and  was done  by  a  C-H-P officer.     Rochelle  Sherman  tried  to kick  out  the  windows  of  the  patrol  car,  and  when  the officer  returned,   she  spit  at  him.     Although  she  was  taken to  Dominican  Hospital  first  for  a  medical  clearance,  Sherman  was  booked  into  Santa  Cruz  County Jail.

Motorists  are  being  reminded  (yet  again)  to  remain  extra  alert  when  driving  through  any  of  the  more  than  900  active  construction  projects  being  worked  on  statewide.     This  reminder  comes  after  a  contract  worker  was  hit  and  killed  today  in  southern  California.  Motorists  are  also  reminded  that  State  Law requires  them  to  move  over  a  lane  (when  that’s  safe  to  do);  or  to  slow  down  when  approaching  vehicles  that have  flashing  amber  warning  lights.

A  28  year-old  forklift  operator  died  very early Monday,   when  his  rough  terrain  forklift  flipped  and  rolled  down  an  embankment  near  Soledad.      The  just  after  midnight  accident  occurred  along  Camphora-Gloria  Road.    The  forklift  driver  was  from  El  Centro.

A  9th  opium  poppy  field  has  been  found  on  the  central  coast.    Santa  Cruz  County  Sheriff’s  deputies  discovered  the  poppy  field  on  a  property  on  the  1000  block  of  Riverside  Drive  in  Watsonville.    The  field  included  about 400  poppy  plants,  that  had  been  planted  between  weeds  and  other  plants  as  cover.   The  property  has  been  vacant  for  over  90  days.   Spokesmen  for  both  the  Santa  Cruz  and  Monterey  County  Sheriff’s  Offices  say  their  Poppy  Investigations  are  ongoing.

1  person  died  in  a  fatal  accident  in  the  Carmel  Valley  this  morning.    The  crash  occurred  on Cachagua  Road, west of Tassajara  Road  around  11:30  a.m.   The  vehicles   involved  were  a  truck  and  a  motorcycle, and the motorcyclist  (68 year-old Salinas resident William West) was declared dead at the scene.

Watsonville Police Department is recruiting volunteers for its Post Incident Team. The group would work with officers to talk with residents and calm fears by dispelling any rumors and providing information on community resources. People interested in joining should call 831-763-5678 by June 15.
