Bicyclist jailed after brief chase in Palm Springs

call from residents of a suspicious person in the area of Calle de Mimosas and El Alameda led police to arrest a man they say had a loaded handgun in his backpack. Felix Santos, 24, of Palm Springs, tried to ride his bicycle away from police when they spotted him at about 8:50 a.m. at Cerritos Drive and Tamarisk Road, Sgt. Mike Kovaleff said. Santos rode a few hundred feet, then jumped off the bike and began running into a nearby condominium complex, ditching the backpack along the way, Kovaleff said. Santos got about 100 feet when police caught up with him in the rear yard of one of the condos, Kovaleff said. They found his backpack, which contained a 9 mm handgun, several rounds of ammunition, a laptop computer and some hashish, in another yard, Kovaleff said. Santos was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest; possession of hashish; carrying a concealed and loaded weapon; and violation of probation. He was booked into the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning where he is being held without bail. Police were still investigating whether the laptop was stolen or belonged to Santos, Kovaleff said.
