RESUME OF INCIDENT
On 02/15/18, detectives and officers from the Ridgecrest Police Department went to the 1600 block of N. Brown Rd. in Inyokern to conduct a probation search on Gerald Field. Upon arrival, officers contacted several people and detained them. During the search, detectives found approximately one ounce of heroin and stolen property. During the incident, Field was able to sneak out the back door while in handcuffs and fled across N. Brown Rd. to the desert. Detectives and officers tracked Field for several hours through the desert and through several properties in Inyokern. Field was eventually able to get away in a vehicle before detectives and officers could catch up to him. The case was filed with the Kern County District Attorney’s Office and they issued a felony warrant for Field.
On 04/20/18, Detective Cushman and Officer Gillett responded to Trona, CA and met with San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Deputies Anderson and Woytovich. They responded to a residence and took Field into custody for his active warrant. While taking Field into custody, deputies located several items and are going to file charges on Field for (H&S) 11351(a) with the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office.
The Ridgecrest Police Department would also like to thank the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department for their assistance. Field was transported to the Central Receiving Facility-Bakersfield where he was booked.
