Woman arrested after leading deputies on Ramona pursuit

Charlyn Maccini was arrested Thursday

RAMONA - A 40-year-old woman was in custody Friday on suspicion of leading deputies on a brief pursuit in Ramona, ending in her arrest for alleged drug possession, authorities said.

Charlyn Maccini was arrested late Thursday afternoon on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance, misdemeanor evasion and for possession of methamphetamine and hashish oil, according to San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Hank Turner.

Around 3:30 p.m., a deputy attempted to pull Maccini over at state Route 78 and Olive Street, suspecting she may have been involved in an attempted residential burglary, the lieutenant said in a statement.

Maccini allegedly refused to yield to the deputy, triggering a three-minute pursuit that ended in her arrest in the 2000 block of Pine Street.

 "Additional charges are pending," Turner said without elaboration.
