CHP chase suspects in Paso, officer injured in crash, and two arrested

PASO ROBLES — An officer was injured during the pursuit of a stolen vehicle on April 5 in the North County. At approximately 6:09 p.m. on Friday, April 5, a California Highway Patrol investigator observed a vehicle parked on Linne Road about 4 miles east of Paso Robles. The location of the parked vehicle was suspicious so the investigator contacted CHP dispatch and had them run the license plate number. The vehicle came back as stolen from Santa Maria. The investigator called for backup and CHP officers from Templeton responded. Before Templeton CHP units arrived, the occupants of the stolen vehicle drove away westbound on Linne Road headed toward Paso Robles.

    Commentary: How to fix the housing crisis

    There is universal agreement that there is a real problem with the average person being able to afford adequate housing (i.e., the “housing crisis”). Young people on beginning salaries, adults in mid-career, and older folks trying to move often cannot save enough for a down payment, nor can they afford the monthly payments of a house. Many are forced to spend their money on rent, which means less funds for saving for a down payment on a house.
