Stolen auto leads to arrest
Placeholder Image
A pursuit of a stolen vehicle in Turlock Tuesday morning led to the arrest of one man for possession of stolen property and another for interfering with investigators.
The Stanislaus County Auto Theft Task force was on patrol in Turlock in the area of North Avenue when they spotted a stolen Jeep.
Investigators attempted to pull the vehicle over, but the driver, later identified as Shea Hughes, 29, of Turlock, sped off.
The pursuit lasted only minutes, but wound its way to Olive and Hawkeye avenues, with the Turlock Police joining the chase, Lt. Ron Reid said.
The pursuit ended at an apartment complex in the 300 block of Hawkeye and Hughes was taken into custody.
Hughes was charged with possession of stolen property that was linked to a prior burglary, Reid said. He was also charged with fleeing a peace officer and a parole violation.
Because Hughes was on parole, investigators searched his apartment. Jason Patterson, 37, was at the apartment and according to investigators, was interfering with the search. He was placed under arrest, Reid said.
