Rough and Ready Car Chase

Several Sheriff, police and CHP vehicles were seen traveling with full lights and sirens down Highway 20 Thursday afternoon. Sheriff’s Lt. John Kropp says a parolee gave chase near HWY 20 and Rough and Ready Highway.

“They got into a pursuit with what they believed to be a parolee. He left his vehicle somewhere in the neighborhood of Highway 20 and Rough & Ready Highway and ran into the woods. With the help of Grass Valley PD, CHP, the narcotics task force and the deputies, we set up a perimeter with California Highway Patrol air support and were able to apprehend a Nathan Prout.”

Prout, 36 years old was arrested on parole violations, and other charges may be added. He was booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility.
