One was arrested in a police pursuit that also led to the discovery of catalytic converter theft tools on Monday. According to the Hercules Police Department, one suspect is still at large.
A police officer tries to make a traffic stop on a vehicle with no license plates. The driver refused to pull over and a slow-speed pursuit began through a residential neighborhood.
The vehicle slowed down as it approached traffic, and the passenger of the vehicle jumped out and fled on foot. The pursuit eventually stopped due to safety concerns for pedestrians and motorists in the neighborhood, HPD said.
The passenger is described as a white male wearing khaki pants, a black-hooded sweatshirt, and a backpack.
Later, an officer located the suspect vehicle parked along Sycamore Avenue. The driver fled on foot into a nearby condominium complex and was located by the officers.
A search of the suspect’s vehicle revealed shaved keys and tools commonly associated with catalytic converter theft, HPD said.
The passenger that fled on foot has not been located.
