On the early morning of April 15th, 2023, a patrol deputy observed a vehicle driving in a reckless
manner in the city of Fillmore. The patrol deputy attempted to catch up to the vehicle to conduct
a traffic stop and observed the vehicle lose control and crash into the side of a business in the

Multiple residents in the nearby area provided surveillance video to the Sheriff’s Office from their
homes, capturing the suspect fleeing on foot from the traffic collision. The surveillance video,

On the afternoon of April 15th, 2023, deputies located Estrada at a residence in the 700
