Turlock police engaged in a high-speed chase with three men in stolen vehicle Monday morning, ultimately arresting the men on numerous felony drug, weapon, and parole violations.
Joseph Walker, 34, of Modesto, was arrested for possession of heroin and methamphetamine, possession of an ASP baton, possession of brass knuckles, possession of stolen property, violating probation, five outstanding warrants and attempting to smuggle methamphetamine into the jail during booking, Turlock Police Lt. Ron Reid said.

Colin Craig, 30, of Modesto, the driver of the vehicle, was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of stolen property, felony evading and committing crimes while out on bail for other crimes.
At 9:28 a.m. a citizen reported suspicious activity with a vehicle near the intersection of Hawkeye Avenue and Quincy Road to police. Upon running the license plate, police found the car was stolen, Reid said.
Police spotted the vehicle near the intersection of Hawkeye and Colorado avenues at 9:35 a.m., where the suspects immediately took off in the vehicle.
Police engaged in a high-speed pursuit through the northeast area of Turlock, where the suspects tossed an ASP baton out of the vehicle. Possession of an ASP collapsible baton is a felony in the State of California.
