Gangbanger Flees From Winco To Trinidad

Robert Wildman eventually arrested; guns, cash, heroin recovered

Winco’s parking lot is apparently not the place to be for a well-armed parolee after midnight.

The tattoo-festooned suspect, 31-year-old Robert Ray Wildman, was at the Eureka Mall at about 12:25 a.m. when a Eureka Police Department foot patrol attempted to contact him. Naturally, Wildman didn’t want to be contacted; he fled at high speed in a gray 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee instead.

After a chase lasting 41 minutes and stretching 36 miles north up Highway 101 to the Trinidad area with speeds exceeding 70 miles per hour, EPD caught up with their suspect. The chase was aided by a spike strip deployed on northbound Highway 101 at Murray Road, which eventually disabled Wildman’s Jeep by popping the front right tire. Eventually the suspect was riding on his rim and was no longer able to drive right about the 99.43 mile marker of Highway 101.

According to a press statement by EPD sergeant Steve Watson, the suspect was then taken into custody at gunpoint. A search of the Jeep uncovered a Norinco SKS assault rifle, 20 grams of tar heroin and nearly $8,700 in cash.

Also recovered was a gun thrown from the Jeep during the chase on the easternmost span of the Samoa Bridge — a M-11 Nine or 9 millimeter SWD Industries automatic pistol. Apparently the weapon bounced off the railing and back onto the road, although the magazine fell into the bay. A single bullet was recovered, suggesting it was loaded when tossed from the Jeep.

Wildman, an active parolee due to a prior burglary conviction, is described by EPD as a “heavily tattooed, documented member of a local criminal street gang.” He was booked into county jail, without bail, on the following charges:

  • Unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon
  • Possession of an assault weapon
  • Possession of ammunition by a prohibited person
  • Reckless evading of a peace officer
  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Parole violation

      More to the story than parole for burglary, automatic weapons, narcotics, large amounts of cash, evading arrest?

    This guy was my best friend when we were 4 and 5. Sooooooo sad to see this now. Everyone has the choice of what path to take and some lead to dark places. I will always remember the boy he was up until he was around 13 when he chose the path that led him to this point.
