A Rancho Cordova man was arrested yesterday afternoon after he crashed a stolen car into a residential structure.

According to Elk Grove Police, 24-year old Randy Matthew Gilbertson was operating a motor vehicle that had been reported stolen and was listed as the person responsible for the theft. A vehicle stop was initiated and Gilbertson pulled into a parking lot. 

Police officers instructed the suspect to place his hands out the driver's side window, and rather than complying, he drove away. A short vehicle pursuit of less than one mile ensued before Gilberston collided with a support column of a residential carport in the 10100 block of Brenna Way causing minor damage. 

After the crash, Gilbertson fled from the vehicle on foot, was pursued by officers and was located hiding inside a bathroom on the campus of the Elk Grove Charter School. The suspect was arrested and booked into the county jail where he remains in custody on $90,000 bail.
