A Man Accused of Stealing a Car With Children Crashed Twice and Puked in the Police Car During the Chase
LAS VEGAS – A guy accused of stealing a car with two children from a convenience store drove police on a chase before puking in a patrol car, according to his arrest report.
Mario Anthony Estrada, 38, faces grand larceny, abduction, and child negligence allegations.
On Oct. 24 at 8:30 p.m., officers were called to a convenience store in the 4000 block of Cheyenne Avenue after a woman claimed her vehicle was stolen with her 9-year-old and 11-month-old children still inside.
Estrada was playing slot machines in the store before leaving with the youngsters, the complaint alleged.
Estrada drove away as the children’s mother tried to open the doors. She chased the car on foot but was unsuccessful, the report claimed.
Estrada pulled over a few blocks from the business and urged the kids to get out. According to the report, the 9-year-old walked back with the other child.
Officers noticed a car going 64 mph in a 30 mph zone less than 10 minutes after the vehicle was stolen.
Estrada kept speeding as police sought to stop him. According to the investigation, Estrada drove into another car, ran red lights, and crashed again.
During the chase, police found he was driving a van reported stolen from a Cheyenne convenience store with two children inside.
After stopping, Estrada got out of the car, lied down, and asked for aid. He informed police he dropped off the kids but didn’t disclose where.
When police put Estrada in a patrol car, he got “agitated and aggressive” and vomited. Police discovered he had a suspended license but didn’t suspect impairment.
Estrada was hospitalized before being booked at NLCC.
