Wanted Subject Arrested following Foot Chase

On Monday September 13, 2021 at about 6:20pm an officer attempted to stop Saucedo for a traffic violation on Martin Luther King Blvd. and Lindley Lane.  Saucedo pulled over and ran away from the officer. The officer pursued Saucedo on foot. After jumping several fences and running through yards, the officer briefly lost sight of Saucedo.  There was a heavy presence of Officers in the area during the search, including Officers with the Eugene Police Department.

911 received a call from a resident in the area reporting a burglary which just occurred.  The description of the male matched Saucedo.  He was spotted by a Eugene Police Officer seconds later.  He was taken into custody without incident and paramedics were summoned as a precautionary measure.

During questioning, Saucedo began losing consciousness.  A Springfield Police Officer recognized the indicators of an opiate overdose and administered NARCAN which we are trained and equipped to do.  He regained consciousness as medics arrived.  He indicated he ingested heroin and fentanyl while running from Police.  It was determined he would need further treatment and was taken to a hospital by ambulance.

Shortly before arriving at the hospital Saucedo broke out of the ambulance and again fled on foot, while in handcuffs.  He was detained by the officer who was following the ambulance.

Saucedo is in the Lane County Jail booked on the following charges:

Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle (Felony)

Two counts of Criminal Driving – Suspended/Revoked (Misdemeanor)

Four counts of Attempt to Elude Police Officer – Vehicle – 2 (Felony)

Recklessly Endangering (Misdemeanor)

Reckless Driving (Misdemeanor)

Attempt to Elude Police Officer – Vehicle – 1

Resisting Arrest (Misdemeanor)

Obstructing Gov/Jud Admin (Misdemeanor)

Two counts of Criminal Trespass in the First Degree (Misdemeanor)

Escape in the Third Degree (Misdemeanor)

During the initial search, officers worked with several area residents who provided valuable information.  Without their help, Saucedo may have avoided capture. Case number 21-6397
