Man leads Lake County deputies on two chases in one week

Posted: Updated:
CHARLO -

Lake County Sheriffs say 56-year-old James Roylance led deputies on two chases in one week. 

Here's their account from a press release sent out Thursday morning: 

On June 9, 2018, Lake County Deputies were dispatched to a male who was driving recklessly in the Charlo area.  It was also reported that he had threatened two females in Charlo with a machete type knife.  The suspect also reportedly purposely rammed into multiple vehicles.  Deputies were able to locate the suspect and a pursuit ensued.  This pursuit led into an alfalfa field near Hall Rd.  In order to keep him within the field and to prevent further threats to public safety, a Deputy shot his rear tires out, and eventually they were able to utilize their patrol vehicles to pin the suspect up against a fence and take him into custody.  The suspect was identified as James Roylance,  56 years of age, of Charlo.  He is currently in the Lake County Jail.

Just 3 days earlier, Roylance was the subject of non-violent criminal complaints in and around Charlo.  In this case, once he was located by a deputy, a short pursuit ensued.  Once apprehended, he was placed in the Lake County Jail on traffic and misdemeanor criminal charges.  He was released after a court appearance.
