Turlock police are currently looking for a suspect who was able to flee from authorities following a series of pursuits early on Tuesday.
An officer observed a driver in a white Jeep Cherokee driving recklessly on Lander Avenue at around 1:20 a.m. and attempted to stop the vehicle.
The suspect attempted to flee and a short pursuit ensued, said Turlock police spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis.
