JCSO Case 23-6526


MEDFORD, Ore. – A stolen minivan driving at high speeds on I-5 attempted to elude law enforcement before crashing on Table Rock Road in Medford today around 1 p.m. After crashing, the suspect attempted to elude on foot before being arrested by Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) deputies. The suspect, Antoine Roberson, 37, of Brookings, Ore., is charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle, reckless driving, recklessly endangering, hit and run, attempting to elude in vehicle, attempting to elude on foot, and first-degree criminal mischief. He is now lodged in the Jackson County Jail.


Around 1:10 p.m. the minivan passed JCSO detectives in an unmarked vehicle around I-5 south at milepost 40. The minivan was driving recklessly at speeds over 100 miles-per-hour in the rain. The detectives radioed ECSO dispatch and a JCSO Traffic deputy and Oregon State Police Trooper staged near I-5 exit 30. The minivan took the exit and attempted to elude law enforcement.


A JCSO deputy successfully spiked the minivan’s tires at Table Rock Road and Berrydale Avenue. The minivan continued driving recklessly before crashing into a car and fence on Table Rock Road. The driver attempted to elude on foot before JCSO deputies quickly outperformed him and took him into custody without incident. There were no injuries reported during the crash.


The minivan was an unreported stolen vehicle out of Josephine County. This case is active and ongoing with deputies following additional leads. There is no further information available for release.
