Ceres Cop Car

A Ceres man escaped arrest Sunday evening after he led police on a vehicle pursuit that started in the area of Whitmore Avenue and Boothe Road.

A Ceres Police officer attempted to pull over the driver of a gray Ford F-150 pickup for a vehicle violation at 7:53 p.m. when the driver fled eastbound on Whitmore Avenue at a high rate of speed. The chase ended up going south on dirt roads and canal banks and lasted several minutes before ending on a canal bank east of Faith Home Road and south of Service Road. The driver ran from the vehicle and got away but has been identified as Larry Pearson, 35, of Ceres.
