Vista, CA–A man early Monday morning was arrested on suspected multiple weapon and drug charges after leading Sheriff’s deputies on a short pursuit through Vista.
The driver, 31-year-old Jeremy Brink was booked into the Vista Detention Facility on multiple felony charges. Bail has been set at $250,000.
The incident occurred on May 22 just after 2 a.m. Deputies from the Vista Sheriff’s Station were trying to conduct a traffic stop for a possible impaired driver on Mercantile Street, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff’s deputies said Brink, a known firearms and narcotics offender in Vista, allegedly failed to pull over for deputies and led them a brief pursuit to his home on Astro Court. He parked his truck in his driveway, locked the doors and yelled for his parents. He has done this at least two times in the past. Brink has a history of carrying concealed home-built firearms and is a convicted felon, deputies said.
Once deputies were able to get Brink to exit his truck, a search revealed a loaded 40 caliber unserialized Glock-style pistol and methamphetamine. Sheriff’s investigators were contacted and responded to the scene. A search warrant was also obtained for Brink’s home.
A search of the home and associated vehicles revealed a loaded 12 gauge shotgun, a loaded and unregistered 1911 pistol, suspected fentanyl, body armor, large quantities of ammunition reloading components and equipment, tools and equipment used to manufacture unserialized firearms, parts to construct suppressors and silencers and loaded factory ammunition.
