On Wednesday, October 3, a Norwalk Crime Suppression Team, along with the assistance of Norwalk Operation Safe Street Detectives were conducting a narcotic operation in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant in an attempt to survey and arrest a known gang member, 31 year-old Chris Ambriz, who was wanted for Possession of a Firearm and Narcotics by a Felon. However Suspect Ambriz did not appear at the location.
After the undercover operation concluded, an L.A.S.D. Sergeant noticed he was being followed by a White Ford Expedition. The suspect drove up to the Sheriff’s undercover vehicle and began shooting at him, striking the Sergeant’s vehicle at least one time. The Ford Expedition then fled the area.
During the investigation, it was confirmed Suspect Ambriz was the driver and person shooting from the vehicle. A few hours later, Suspect Ambriz was tracked down at a motel in Buena Park and taken into custody.
The undercover Sergeant was known to the suspect because the Sergeant had previously arrested Suspect Ambriz.
Norwalk has been hit with a rash of violent crimes during the past nine months, including eight violent murders.
