Burglar Captured After Pursuit, Foot Chase In Red Bluff

A suspected burglar in Red Bluff evaded law enforcement before eventually being captured Thursday. At 6:43AM a resident of Robinson Drive interrupted a burglary in progress at his neighbor’s house. The thief ran to his car and fled with the other man chasing him, but lost control and collided with a house on Haley Lane. The suspect continued driving his heavily damaged car with the neighbor chasing him as Red Bluff Police, Tehama County Deputies and the CHP responded. A deputy spotted the car speeding along Walnut Street and chased it at 80 miles an hour until the suspect pulled into the parking lot of a business on Baker Street and took off on foot. Despite searching for about an hour, the man was not found. A while later police returned to the area on a report of a man matching the description walking through a field. When he saw officers he ran, jumping over backyard fences and running through yards. A search was done until Max the K9 tracked down 32-year-old Keith Harris of Orland in a patch of tall grass next to a pond. He was booked into jail on several charges.
