Kim Nida, Placerville Police -- Reuben Maclis was arrested for an outstanding parole warrant after leading police in vehicle pursuit.

On January 17, 2017 just after 4 p.m., the Placerville Police Department received information that a wanted subject, Reuben Maclis (DOB 2/16/82), was at a storage unit off of Locust Street in the city of Placerville. Maclis had two outstanding warrants for his arrest, which included; one for domestic violence, penal code section 273.5, and assault with a deadly weapon, penal code section 245 (A)(1), a second warrant for violation of parole, penal code section 3056.

When officers responded to the area of Locust Street near the storage facility, the vehicle that Maclis was associated with left the storage facility headed north on Locust Street. Officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle, however the driver failed to yield and a pursuit was initiated. The driver led officers on a 6 minute pursuit out of the city on Cedar Ravine Road. The pursuit ended when the driver turned off a dirt road and due to terrain, he couldn’t drive the truck any further. The driver and only passenger of the vehicle immediately led officers on a foot pursuit in the area of Pretty Good Road and Quarry Road area. Maclis was apprehended a short distance later at a residence off of Moonshine Hill Road. The passenger of the vehicle was not located.

“The efforts of our law enforcement partners, El Dorado County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol are invaluable,” City of Placerville’s Chief of Police Dan Drummond remarked. “They responded to the area quickly and assisted us with the apprehension of this wanted felon.”

Maclis was booked into the El Dorado County Jail for the two outstanding warrants without bail.
