A man who tried to run after an officer spotted him in a stolen car wasn’t successful, authorities said.
According to Turlock police, an officer saw a vehicle that matched the description of a stolen car just after 11:30 p.m. Monday. As the officer turned his patrol car to contact the driver, the driver got out of the car and ran.
Police established a perimeter and looked for the suspect, later identified as Adam Vargas, 28. They found Vargas hiding in a home in the 700 block of East Main St.
He was booked into Stanislaus County Jail on a charge of possession of stolen property.
