Two Hesperia men were arrested Thursday following a high-speed pursuit by San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department deputies.

Deputies Ray Santa Cruz and Dave Herbert of the Hesperia station's Gang Team received a tip that drugs were being sold out of an apartment on the 16500 block of Willow Street. Deputies watching the apartment saw what appeared to be a drug transaction take place, and when the alleged dealers drove off, Santa Cruz and Herbert followed westbound down Willow.

The deputies apparently spooked the driver, because the suspect's vehicle drove through a stop sign and took off at a high rate of speed. Santa Cruz turned on the patrol vehicle's lights and siren, but the suspect continued fleeing before losing control of the vehicle near the intersection of Willow and Hesperia Road.

He jumped out of the crashed car, leaving his passenger behind, and fled the scene on foot. Two other deputies later found the suspect hiding in the shed behind a nearby house.

Bobby Johnson, 36, and Derrick Anderson, 39, were arrested on charges of failure to yield, evading a police officer and on drug charges. Drugs were reportedly found on Johnson and in the vehicle.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Hesperia sheriff's station at 760-947-1500 or call the anonymous WE-TIP line at 800-782-7463.
