After rolling his vehicle early on Saturday, a driver gave a false stolen vehicle report to Turlock police.

Shortly after 1 a.m. on Saturday, a driver was traveling northbound in the 1400 block of West Avenue South when he rolled his vehicle and went through a fence, said Turlock police spokesperson Sgt. Stephen Webb.

The driver then got out of his vehicle and fled from the area. Once out of the area, he reported that his car had been stolen, said the Turlock Police Department.

When he arrived back on scene with officers, the driver admitted that he had been driving the vehicle and fled following the collision.

Hernan Villalobos, 21, was arrested for hit and run.

Villalobos was not injured in the collision.

Drugs and alcohols were not a factor in the collision, said Webb.
