The Stanislaus County Auto Theft Task Force has released more information about Saturday’s arrest of Turlock man for attempted murder and auto theft, following a high-speed pursuit.

Juan Zapata, 22, was arrested for auto theft, two separate counts of felony evading, possession of a stolen vehicle, misdemeanor hit and run, and outstanding warrants for attempted murder and weapon charges, said StanCATT Supervisor Sgt. Alan Pittman.

Zapata allegedly stole a 2006 Lexus from Emeryville and was spotted by StanCATT Saturday morning. The sighting prompted a high-speed chase toward Hilmar, with Turlock police and California Highway Patrol officers in pursuit.

Zapata collided with another vehicle near the Merced County line and continued toward Hilmar. Due to heavy traffic, the Turlock Police Department terminated the pursuit.

Zapata was later spotted by StanCATT on northbound Highway 99 near Bradbury Road, where they attempted to pull the stolen vehicle over. Zapata fled, prompting another high-speed pursuit with CHP.

The CHP Commercial Unit dropped spike strips at the West Main Street exit and hit one of the Lexus’s front tires.

The suspect continued driving at speeds in excess of 70 mph until he was eventually stopped and apprehended on Angelus Street, near Orange Street, in Turlock.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
