STANISLAUS COUNTY – A motorcyclist led authorities on a pursuit through two counties that reached high speeds late Tuesday night.

At about 10:30pm, authorities attempted to stop a motorcycle that sped away from officers. The motorcycle fled via northbound Highway 99 into San Joaquin County. Speeds at times reached 120 miles per hour. The motorcyclist sped into the Stockton area before reversing course and coming back south on the highway.

Again, the motorcycle reached speeds of over 100 miles per hour as it re-entered Stanislaus County. California Highway Patrol Officers continued the pursuit as the chase exited Tuolumne Boulevard and into downtown Modesto.

After making a few loops through downtown streets, the motorcyclist rode into the airport neighborhood, at times seeming to travel in circles. Eventually, the motorcyclist fled through Yosemite Boulevard into downtown Modesto again. The chase led officers onto McHenry Avenue briefly, before turning around and heading south toward Ceres.

The pursuit continued into Ceres for a few moments with CHP Officers continuing behind the motorcyclist. Eventually, the rider fled west on Service Road then south on Crows Landing.

Officers continued south into the county behind the motorcyclist until it turned onto River Road from Crows Landing. The pursuit came to a stop shortly before midnight just north of LB Crow Road and the rider was taken into custody by officers without further incident.

An arrest record shows Dorothy Lee Parker, 41 of San Leandro, was arrested at 11:55pm by CHP and was held on $50,000 bail. Charges included reckless evading of a peace officer, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended or revoked license, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Parker’s motorcycle, a 2007 Suzuki GSXR sport bike, was taken by a tow service after the 83 minute pursuit.

STANISLAUS COUNTY – Authorities with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office eradicated an illegal marijuana grow west of the city of Waterford Tuesday morning.

Deputies surrounded the location near the area of Yosemite Boulevard and McEwen Road Wednesday morning to serve a warrant on a fenced off property.

Authorities were notified due to a fence that was too high for property code. The Stanislaus County Sheriff Air Unit was able to fly over the property and see the grow operation. A judge signed the warrant to be executed Tuesday morning.

In total nearly 1,000 plants were found. The amount of plants and outdoor grow is not permitted in Stanislaus County.

Neighboring almond farmers applauded the efforts of the sheriff’s office, saying the grows bring an unwanted element to their community.

“I have four kids,” one farmer who wished to remain unidentified said. “We don’t need this around here.”

Four individuals were detained to be questioned on their involvement in the operation. Utility and animal services were also called out to assist at the location.

SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY – Authorities are investigating a plane crash that occurred Saturday evening in a rural area not far from the Weston Ranch community.

At 7:39pm the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office reported a military plane had crashed in the area of South Roberts and Muller Roads.

Early reports indicate the craft had three persons aboard. Two were transported to a hospital and the third was able to walk away from the crash. The craft appeared to have significant damage.

The aircraft appeared to be a Mitchell B-25J called “Old Glory.” The plane is listed as owned by David Prescott of the Prescott Foundation.

Most recently in early September, the craft flew to Hawaii to commemorate the end of World War II, as well as delivered 30 pallets of toys to the islands for Toys for Tots.

Authorities say the airplane struck an irrigation ditch as it came down, and the injuries sustained were not life threatening.
