Modesto Police Pursuit of Burglary Suspect Ends with Arrest and Crash in Turlock

At about 2:36 am Tuesday morning, the Modesto Police Department was dispatched to a reported auto burglary that had just occurred at a residence in the 2800 block of Sapphire Drive, Modesto, after a man had been seen stealing items from an equipment trailer in front of the residence.

While responding, one of the officers observed a vehicle matching the description of the suspect vehicle with garden equipment in plain view traveling northbound on Claus Road approaching East Briggsmore Avenue.

The officer then observed the vehicle violate the California Vehicle Code so he attempted to make a traffic stop on it, however, the driver, later identified as Joseph Jones, 35, of Waterford, failed to stop for the officer and a pursuit ensued.

Jones led the officer eastbound on Parker Road before crashing into a street sign at Wellsford Road and then backing into the officer’s vehicle which constituted aggravated assault against the officer.

After backing into the officer’s vehicle, Jones continued to flee southbound on Wellsford Road, eastbound on Dusty Road, and then southbound on Albers Road. Jones continued southbound onto Geer Road until entering Turlock and turning westbound on West Springer Drive. Jones did hit spike strips at Geer Road and Service Road, however, they did not have much effect.

Jones then continued westbound onto Sandy Way, southbound on Magnolia Drive, and then westbound on Ashford Drive. From there, he turned southbound on Crowell Road before crashing into a front yard at the T-intersection of West Tuolumne Road with Crowell Road.

With the assistance of the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office and Turlock Police Department, a high risk stop was conducted and Jones was taken into custody at gunpoint without further incident.

A search of Jones’ vehicle incident led to the discovery of the property stolen from the original equipment trailer burglary. They were returned back to their rightful owner.

Jones was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm against a peace officer, flight from a peace officer with disregard to public safety, burglary, hit and run with property damage, possession of methamphetamines, driving without a valid driver’s license, reckless driving, possession of burglary tools, and driving without evidence of financial responsibility.

No one was injured as a result of neither of the three collisions.

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."
