Ojai Pursuit Ends In Arrest Of Oregon Man

Clarence Darold Haws arrested by Ventura Police for local burglaries, failing to register as sex offender

In the early morning hours of July 28, Ojai deputies were involved in a pursuit of a vehicle that had committed a traffic violation.
During the pursuit, the pursued vehicle left the roadway and rolled several times on Creek Road north of Country Club Drive. After the accident, the driver fled the scene and the passenger was detained. Inside the vehicle, deputies discovered a large quantity of stolen property from recent burglaries in the Ojai Valley and identification information for a Clarence Darold Haws, 24, from Lincoln City, Ore. The Ojai deputies conducted a search for Haws, but were unable to locate him.
On Aug. 1, officers from the Ventura Police Department contacted Haws at a motel in Ventura regarding an incident unrelated to the vehicle pursuit on the 28th. The Ventura Police Department arrested Haws for failing to register as a sex offender, resisting arrest, and a misdemeanor warrant from San Bernardino County.
Ojai detectives were notified Haws was in custody at the Ventura County Main Jail and interviewed him regarding the vehicle pursuit, stolen property, and the recent reported burglaries. After the interview, Haws was arrested for five counts of residential burglary, felony evading with a vehicle, possession of stolen property, and resisting arrest. Haws was booked on the above charges at the Main Jail.
