Motorcyclist leads police on chase into Turlock
police lights

A Modesto motorcycle rider’s attempt to evade a Ceres Police officer on Saturday evening ended when he was captured and jailed.

Brandon Walker, 33, of Modesto may have chosen to run from police because of the methamphetamine in his pocket.

The incident began at 10:17 p.m., when Ceres Police Officer Kevin Roseen spotted Walker violating the vehicle code on his Harley-Davidson motorcycle in the area of Hatch and Mitchell roads. Walker would not pull over a police pursuit followed into Turlock. Walker rode westbound on Main Street out into the country where officers were able to block the road near the intersection of Main Street and Blaker Road. But by then the Harley appeared to be having mechanical issues. Walker was arrested and searched and found with a baggy of a white crystalline substance suspected of being methamphetamine.

Walker was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center for possession of a controlled substance, evading police in a vehicle, traveling against traffic during a vehicle pursuit and resisting arrest.
