Sheriff seeks public’s helping in locating suspect
On Friday, January 13, 2017, at approximately 9:40 PM, Deputy Sheriffs in North Richmond attempted to stop a red Acura that was believed to be driven by 22-year-old Eddie Nute of Citrus Heights, who has a $1 million dollar arrest warrant for auto burglary and conspiracy with a gang enhancement.
The vehicle failed to yield and led Deputies on a pursuit, which headed westbound on Highway 80. While fleeing, the suspect collided with a minivan and did not stop. As the suspect approached the Bay Bridge, he struck a Mercedes, which lost control. A Deputy attempted to stop, however he collided into the back of the Mercedes. The pursuit was terminated.
The drivers of the two vehicles were transported to local hospitals as a precaution. The Deputy was not injured.
While on scene Deputies were notified that there was a nearby vehicle disabled in the median. It was later determined it was the wanted vehicle. The driver fled and is still outstanding.
Nute is described as African American, 5’, 7” tall, 160 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes.
