Warrants, eluding trouble

Lydia Campbell, 26, is accused of vehicular eluding, drug possession and reckless driving, and received a $15,000 cash-only bond from Mesa County Court on Monday.

Judge Bruce Raaum said she presented a public safety risk with the vehicular eluding allegations.

Campbell was driving in Mesa County on Friday and in an attempt to contact the passenger, Emilio Cordova, 21, who had active warrants for his arrest, police tried to conduct a traffic stop.

Campbell allegedly drove away.

Officers attempted a tactical vehicle intervention between Anna Court and 32 Road.

It was unsuccessful but the bumper of the suspects’ car was knocked loose and dragging on the ground, according to the arrest affidavit.

The vehicle continued to 32 Road where it reportedly reached speeds of 85 to 90 miles per hour.

Another tactical vehicle intervention was implemented and the vehicle spun out and came to a stop, the affidavit said.

Both the driver and passenger fled the scene on foot, climbing a nearby fence but both were subsequently captured, the affidavit said.

Methamphetamine was found inside the vehicle.

Cordova received a $10,000 cash-only bond on Monday on charges that included drug possession. He also received a $25,000 cash-only bond in a domestic violence incident for which he had an active warrant for his arrest.

n Jesus Holguin, 20, is accused of vehicular eluding and reckless driving, among other charges and received a $25,000 cash-only bond on Tuesday.

Holguin was seen driving the wrong way down a one-way street that an officer was parked on, according to the arrest affidavit.

When the officer pursued, Holguin allegedly ran multiple stop signs when numerous pedestrians were in the area.

The passenger of the vehicle jumped out at around 15 mph, the affidavit said. In a conversation with police the passenger said he told Holguin to stop and let him out multiple times but he refused.

Holguin was later arrested at his place of employment, the affidavit said.

n Nathan Scymanski, 32, is accused of stalking and domestic violence and received a $15,000 cash-only bond on Tuesday.

An ex girlfriend of Scymanski reported he threatened her and her family. Since November 30, 80 emails were found that had been sent by Scymanski, many of which were threatening, according to the arrest affidavit.
