Two arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen vehicle

On Wednesday, Kern County Sheriff’s deputies arrested two Wasco residents on suspicion of possession of a stolen car after a crash on Poso Drive.

Deputies said the crash, involving a stolen Chevrolet Astro van, took place near the dirt extension of Poso Drive, which is located just west of the 28100 block of Poso Drive.

A witness told deputies that a silver Honda Civic was possibly picking up the suspects of the wrecked Chevrolet Astro van.

Deputies located the stolen Civic backing out of a residential driveway in the 28100 block of Poso Drive. Three of the five occupants in the Civic fled on foot. Deputies managed to detain 24-year-old Sophia Campos and 19-year-old Patrick Arrambide.

Deputies found an additional stolen Civic at the same location.
