Attempted Murder Suspect Taken Into Custody After Vehicle Pursuit Near Casino -

Saturday 4th January 2020

Deputies were able to apprehend a 54-year-old suspect wanted for attempted murder, criminal threats and felony domestic violence following a vehicle pursuit that began Saturday morning in the back parking lot of the Harrah's Rincon Casino in Valley Center.

At 2:20 a.m., deputies from the sheriff's Valley Center substation received a call from the Imperial County Sheriff's Department regarding Steven Salas, who was driving a black Jeep Wrangler, said Sgt. Michael Tingley of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.

"Through a Sirius Radio ping, the vehicle was located at the Harrah's Rincon Casino in Valley Center," Tingley said. "Deputies responded to the area and located the vehicle in the back parking lot of the casino. An attempt to contact the suspect was made and the suspect fled in the vehicle."

During the pursuit deputies used a spike strip that forced Salas back to the casino and eventually he pulled into a 7-Eleven gas station, where he was taken into custody.

"Salas was booked into the San Diego County Vista Detention Facility on several felony charges," Tingley said.
