A 19-year-old Modesto woman racked up a number of serious charges after she led Ceres Police on a short vehicle pursuit Monday evening.

At 10:47 p.m., Officer Aaron Pinon was westbound on Hatch Road when he saw Jackelyne Carnelio, 19, of Modesto, violated the vehicle code in her gray-colored Infinity as she turned onto Morgan Road. Carnelio turned onto Midway Avenue and stopped in the middle of the street. Officer Pinion used a loudspeaker to instruct her to pull over to the side but she ignored him. When Officer Pinon exited his patrol vehicle to approach Carnelio, she took off, initiating a short pursuit at low speeds while blowing through a stop sign. She eventually stopped in the 900 block of Dover Avenue, where she was taken into custody.

Officers located a black Glock 27 firearm with live rounds and marijuana for sale. Carnelio was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of carrying a loaded firearm, possessing a concealed firearm offense while on bail, possession of marijuana for sale, evading police officer, and obstructing a police officer.
