A Turlock man who tried to avoid a search based on his probation status by running from officers, ended up in custody for drug, weapon and resisting charges.
The incident began shortly around 10 a.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of Rockwood Avenue when officers spotted Kyle Teehee, 29, and recognized him as a probationer.
Teehee refused to be searched, which is a condition of his probation, said Turlock Police spokesperson Sgt. Stephen Webb.
Teehee suddenly took off running from the officers. He was jumping over fences in the neighborhood in an effort to flee, but the effort came to no avail when other officers were called to the area to assist in his apprehension.
The officers positioned themselves in the neighborhood and took Teehee into custody when he emerged from a backyard yard, Webb said.
A search of Teehee revealed he was carrying methamphetamine and ammunition. Officers retraced his path and found a gun that had been discarded, Webb said.
Teehee was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, being a felon in possession of a weapon, being a felon in possession of ammunition, resisting arrest and for a probation violation.
Teehee remains in custody at the Stanislaus County Jail.
