Auto thieves nabbed after police pursuit

Submitted By Lt. Raj Maharai, Milpitas PD

During a patrol of a shopping center on Ranch Drive, sharp-eyed Milpitas Police detectives spotted a stolen 2009 Nissan Murano SUV being driven through the parking lot. There were four people inside.

Detectives called for backup help while quietly following the SUV to the area of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road in Mountain View. Mountain View police were notified and tried to stop the SUV, but the driver sped away. The vehicle was later found abandoned after it crashed into a pole and fence on San Antonio Circle.

After an extensive search, all four occupants of the vehicle were found and arrested. Inside the SUV stolen property from a San Jose burglary was found along with drug paraphernalia.

Michael Temesgen, 33, a transient from San Jose, who is on formal probation in Santa Clara County, was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of driving a stolen vehicle, evading officers, hit and run, possession of drug paraphernalia, and resisting arrest.

Ariel Kleefman, 26, of Milpitas, was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of possessing stolen property, resisting arrest, possession of narcotics, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Lyle Peterson Jr., 37, a transient from San Jose, who is on post release community supervision (PRCS) in Santa Clara County, was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of possessing stolen property, resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a warrant for violation of PRCS.

Derrick Dixon II, 31, of Milpitas, who is on formal probation in Santa Clara County, was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of possessing stolen property, resisting arrest, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
