Police seek suspect following pursuit and collision
Redlands Police are seeking the public’s help in locating a suspect following a police pursuit that resulted in a hit-and-run collision Friday night.
The suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Terrell Anthony Harper, of Highland. Harper has a $100,000 arrest warrant stemming from this incident. The vehicle he was driving was determined to have been stolen earlier out of San Bernardino.
Officers were patrolling in the area of the Walmart store at California Street and Redlands Boulevard at about 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, when they were flagged down by a Walmart employee who reported a theft that had just occurred. The suspect vehicle, a 2000 Mercury Marquis, fled north on California Street at a high rate of speed and collided with another vehicle at California Street and San Bernardino Avenue. One person was ejected from that vehicle and suffered moderate injuries. The suspect fled on foot to a nearby warehouse, leaving another injured passenger in his vehicle. Redlands Fire Department paramedics treated the injured victims before 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.
Anyone with additional information on the possible location of Harper is asked to contact Redlands Police Dispatch at (909) 798-7681.
