Drug Suspect Nabbed After Hit-Run Chase

A young Pomona man, apparently planning suicide, was arrested Thursday afternoon and booked on suspicion of driving while under the influence of a drug.

The suspect is George Edward Kefalas, 23, of 1350 S. East End Ave. He also was accused of hit-run driving.

A. B. Jeffers, 41 year-old Pomona contractor, told police that Kefalas’ auto struck his earlier at 5th Ave. And Reservoir St. Jeffers, of 780 W. 6th St., said he had stopped for a red light when Kefalas’ auto struck his, backed up and sped away eastbound on 5th ave.

Jeffers said he chased Kefalas and clocked the suspect at 70 mph. Just before reaching the city limits, Jeffers said the left front tire of Kefalas’ 1935-model auto came off but the driver kept right on going.

By that time California Highway Patrolman Lloyd Clark took up pursuit of Kefalas and chased him to the Montclair area where another CHP officer, R. G. Sykes, halted the suspect.

Police, who booked Kefalas said the man admitted taking Seconal tablets earlier because he had had an argument with his wife. Seconal is a barbiturate. Officers said he almost lost consciousness at the police station and was taken to Pomona Valley Community Hospital and later the jail ward of the county hospital.

Police said they found a suicide note on Kefalas’ front lawn in which he said he had taken his own life.

He died on 1 March 1992 at Sun City, Riverside Co., CA, at age 57 Dates and location per California Death Index. He was buried in March 1992 at Perris Valley Cemetery, Perris, Riverside Co., CA, Findagrave #85331552.
