Police: Yuba City man arrested after leading officers on pursuit in stolen vehicle

A Yuba City man was recently arrested after allegedly leading officers on a pursuit in a stolen vehicle.

On the evening of Friday, February 4, officers responded to the area of Queens Avenue and Market Street to investigate reports of a man behaving erratically and challenging people to fights. Officers arrived just as the individual — later identified as 37-year-old Moses Martinez of Yuba City — was leaving the area in a vehicle which was soon confirmed to have been stolen, police said.

After Martinez failed to yield to an attempted traffic stop, officers pursued him into Marysville and then back into Yuba City. The pursuit ended when Martinez drove into a dead end on Martinez Street, at which point he reportedly fled the vehicle on foot.

Martinez was soon found hiding behind a dumpster and would not move from that spot, police said. Officers then sent in K9 Officer Rip to assist in apprehending him.

Martinez was treated for minor injuries and released shortly thereafter, and ultimately booked at the Sutter County Jail on suspicion of possession of a stolen vehicle, evading a police officer, delaying/obstructing a police officer, and parole violation, with a bail enhancement of $100,000.
