A man suspected of stealing a shopping cart full of laundry detergent from a Vons supermarket was caught on Tuesday when he rear-ended a paramedic truck after running a red light.
The 53-year-old Ronald Ledesma was arrested in Lake Forest at Jeronimo Road and Cherry Avenue for suspected hit-and-run, burglary and driving under the influence.
The incident occurred at about 5:30 p.m. when a Vons store was robbed near Los Alisos and 241 toll road in Mission Viejo. The suspect took a shopping cart full of laundry detergent from the supermarket.
Just a few minutes later, Ledesma did not stop at a red light and crashed into the back of a paramedic vehicle. He did not stop at the scene of the collision and he attempted to flee. A witness of the scene followed him to Lake Forest, where he was apprehended by authorities.
Officials are saying that they believe that Ledesma was under the influence of drugs.
