Live Oak parolee arrested in high-speed chase
A Live Oak parolee was traveling with marijuana in his car when he drove through a stop sign as a Marysville police officer looked on, authorities said.
The driver, later identified by police as Hector Jurado, did not stop when the officers tried to pull him over and, instead, allegedly led police on a high-speed chase through Yuba City.
Jurado, 47, was stopped a short time later after officers rammed his vehicle with a patrol car and arrested him at Lomo Crossing, Sgt. Kim Slade said. Nobody was injured.
Police said Jurado refused to cooperate with investigators.
"He wouldn't even give us his name," Slade said.
Jurado was booked into the Sutter County Jail without bail on suspcion of evading police, a felony, and possession of marijuana for sale.
Officers tried to stop Jurado just after 11 a.m. and chased him over the 10th Street Bridge into Yuba City.
The chase, which reached speeds of 80 mph at one point, raced up Plumas Street to Queens Avenue and headed up Live Oak Boulevard before police stopped the vehicle, using a trained ramming technique.
Wednesday's chase was the second to start in Yuba County and end with an arrest in less than 24 hours.
