Cold-plated vehicle called in as dangerous driver leads officer on pursuit Wednesday afternoon

On Wednesday, March 8th, 2023, at 4:36 pm, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported dangerous driver near the intersection of Geer Rd and W Monte Vista Ave, Turlock, who was running red lights and passing in the turn lane.

As an officer was looking for the vehicle, he located it and attempted to make a traffic stop on it near the intersection of E Canal Dr and N Palm St.
