On Tuesday, September 26, 2023, at 7:43 p.m., an employee of business reported a theft of fragrances valued at over ten thousand dollars had just occurred. The reporting party stated two Black male adults entered the business with empty bags, filled them with perfume, and then fled the business in an unknown vehicle. Deputies located the suspect vehicle, a blue sedan, and attempted a traffic stop just west of Date Palm on westbound Interstate 10. The driver failed to yield and a pursuit was initiated. The vehicle began driving erratically at a high rate of speed, and onto the freeway dirt shoulder. The pursuit terminated after the suspect vehicle collided into a tree, approximately four miles east of Cabazon. The passenger, Dalin Sasser, 24-year-old resident of San Bernardino, attempted to flee on foot and was caught and apprehended. The driver, Phillip Noble, 27-year-old resident of San Bernardino, was detained without incident. Stolen property from the business was recovered inside of the suspect vehicle. Both suspects will be booked into John Benoit Detention Center. The investigation is on-going.

Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to contact Deputy Barker at the Palm Desert Sheriff’s Station by calling (760) 836-1600.
