Vehicle Pursuit Gold Sedan

Minden, Nevada- On May 2, 2020 at 3:10 pm the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) Patrol Division attempted to stop a motor vehicle with fictitious license plates in the area of Waterloo Lane and Centerville Lane, Gardnerville, Nevada. 


When the DCSO Patrol Deputy turned on his emergency lights the 1999 Gold Oldsmobile sedan drove away accelerating to over 65 mph.  The gold sedan immediately lost its front tire and continued to drive on the rim almost striking oncoming vehicles due their inability to control the motor vehicle without a tire. DCSO continued to follow the gold sedan turning onto Highway 395 south bound.   The gold sedan lost a second tire and continued on two rims south on Highway 395. 


DCSO was able to box in the gold sedan due to it being unable to maintain higher speeds without four tires.  DCSO unit used a motor vehicle intervention technique causing the gold sedan to spin out and stop in the ditch on Jake’s Hill south of Rockbottom Road, Gardnerville, Nevada.


There were two occupants in the gold sedan.  It was determined the male, identified as Clayton Enox had outstanding warrants for his arrest in Carson City, Nevada.  The female, Jasmine Simental, was arrested for narcotics related charges.  DCSO is still investigating whether the gold sedan was stolen out of Fallon, Nevada, it was not registered to either subject. 


Enox and Simental were cleared of any medical concerns and booked into the Douglas County Jail. 


No law enforcement officers were harmed.
