“This past weekend on 11/07/20 at around 04:26 AM, officers were dispatched to an apartment complex in the 2000 block of Sylvan Way on a report of a male breaking into the detached garages.
The witness who reported the incident was able to provide a description of the suspect vehicle. Officers were able to locate the suspect vehicle leaving the area and a pursuit ensued.
The suspect vehicle fled southbound into Stockton city limits. CHP officers were able to stop and disable the vehicle with use of a spike strip, and the driver fled on foot.
After a brief foot pursuit the driver was taken into custody with the assistance of Stockton PD and CHP in the 9000 block of Bismark Place in Stockton.
The driver was identified as James Highfill (49 of Stockton) who was found to have several warrants for his arrest, one of which was a parole violation warrant.
Highfill was also found to be in possession of burglary tools. Highfill was ultimately booked into the San Joaquin County Jail for burglary, possession of burglary tools, felony evading and his warrants. Thank you again CHP and SPD for your help.”
