Police Pursuit Leads to Hit-and-Run Collision in Redlands: Suspect Sought

The pursuit began with a report of a theft about 6 p.m. Friday Nov. 2 at the Walmart store on Redlands Boulevard, a city spokesman said. Two people were injured in the hit-and-run.

Redlands police chased a suspect Friday evening and the pursuit led to a hit-and-run collision, a city spokesman said Tuesday Nov. 6.

The suspect, identified as a Highland man, was still at large Tuesday and police released a photo of him hoping for information from the public.

The pursuit began with a report of a theft about 6 p.m. Friday Nov. 2 at the Walmart store on Redlands Boulevard, Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said in a statement.

A Walmert employee flagged down officers patrolling the area and a suspect vehicle was described a 2000 Mercury Marquis, Baker said.

The suspect in the Mercury "fled north on California Street at a high rate of speed and collided with another vehicle at California Street and San Bernardino Avenue," Baker said.

One person was ejected from that vehicle and suffered moderate injuries, Baker said.

"The suspect fled on foot to a nearby warehouse, leaving another injured passenger in his vehicle," Baker said.

Redlands Fire Department paramedics treated the injured victims and they were transported to a local hospital.

"Police evacuated employees, locked down the warehouse, and used search dogs from the Colton and Fontana Police departments along with air support from the Fontana PD helicopter but were unable to locate the suspect," Baker said.

The suspect was identified as Terrell Anthony Harper, 28, of Highland.

"Harper has a $100,000 arrest warrant stemming from this incident," Baker said. "The vehicle he was driving was determined to have been stolen earlier out of San Bernardino."

Anyone with more information on Harper and his whereabouts was urged to contact Redlands Police Dispatch at (909) 798-7681. Anonymous tips can be provided by texting 274637 using the keyword "REDTIP."
