At about 2:35 am Sunday morning, a Turlock Police officer near the intersection of South Beech Street and Flower Street, Turlock, saw a vehicle which he recognized to have been stolen out of the county’s jurisdiction the day prior. The officer got behind the vehicle and attempted to make a traffic stop on its driver, later identified as Garcia Cesar, 33, of Modesto, however, Cesar accelerated to high speeds and a pursuit was initiated.

Cesar fled westbound on Flower Street from South Beech Street before crashing into the fence of Turlock Memorial Park, 575 North Soderquist Road.

Cesar then exited his vehicle and fled into the memorial park on foot. The officer chased Cesar for a minute before being able to gain his compliance and get him proned out on the ground. Assisting officers arrived and Cesar was taken into custody without further incident.

The pursuit lasted less than a minute and speeds only reached a high of approximately sixty miles per hour.

The stolen vehicle, a gray BMW sedan, sustained moderate damage. It was deemed inoperable as a result of the collision, requiring it to be towed away. In addition to the fence being struck, a stop sign was also taken out. The stop sign had an electrical component to it which led to live wires being exposed, so on-call city crews responded to secure it.

When officers conducted a records check on Cesar, they discovered that he was on post release community supervision for a prior auto theft case.

Cesar was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of flight from a peace officer with disregard to public safety, auto theft, hit and run causing property damage, resisting a peace officer, and violating post release community supervision.

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. 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."
