Eureka PD Looking For a Suspect Who Fled a Traffic Stop and Reportedly Ditched a Firearm When Pursued, According to Scanner Traffic
This is a press release from the Eureka Police Department. The information has not been proven in a court of law and any individuals described should be presumed innocent until proven guilty:
On 11-02-17 at about 10:12 am, an officer of the Eureka Police Department conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle at 3rd / ‘B’ Streets. The vehicle yielded and the driver was contacted. Shortly after contacting the driver, he abruptly drove off east on 3rd Street. A pursuit was initiated. The vehicle traveled through several intersections without stopping for stop signs. Due to the threat the drivers actions posed to the civilians in the area, the pursuit was terminated. The vehicle was last seen traveling south on ‘N’ Street from 4th Street.
A short time later, officers located the vehicle unoccupied and parked in a driveway at the 1600 block of Nedra Street. The vehicle was processed and towed from the scene.
This is an open investigation and anyone with information concerning this incident is urged to contact Officer Nantz at 707 441-4060.
