YUMA, AZ - Two suspects who appeared in Yuma Justice Court Thursday after a high speed chase, crash, and police pursuit lands them in jail.
Luis Covarrubias was wanted by San Luis police for outstanding warrants for domestic violence.
He sits behind bars on a laundry list of additional charges.
On Wednesday evening, a Yuma police officer recognized Covarrubias as a passenger in a truck. When police attempted to pull the truck over, they say he held the driver at gun point and told him not to stop. They say the driver then crashed into the Bank Of America sign on 4-th Street after a short high speed chase.
Covarrubias faces two counts of kidnapping and two counts of aggravated assault using a deadly weapon.
YPD says a stolen gun was found in the truck and Covarrubias faces charges of theft and possession of a weapon.
Following the crash all three occupants fled the scene. Two were caught quickly and Covarrubias was found 30 minutes later hiding in the back of Comstock Refrigeration. Criminal trespass was added to his charges for that.
As for the other two men in the car, both were transported to Yuma Regional Medical Center for treatment.
One of them, Anthony Raygoza, was also wanted by law enforcement.
He also appeared in court Thursday afternoon facing one count of aggravated assault.
Police say on July 31 Raygoza almost struck two U.S. Marshall agents with a vehicle while they were attempting to arrest a fugitive in the 800 block of W. Westridge Drive in Yuma.
Covarrubias bond was set at more than $300,000.
Raygoza's was set at $50,000.
The driver of the vehicle was released from custody.
