Today was one of those days where I was hopping around listening to the scanner. A stolen car in the morning and a parolee fleeing a search made for some tense moments around town today.
A stolen Cadillac out of Modesto was spotted near the Save Mart on south Tracy Blvd. this morning and the felony stop in the parking lot drew quite a few stares. Officer made a high-risk stop pulling out the occupants at gunpoint when the car stopped just in front of the supermarket.
Later in the afternoon a parolee fled from a search and a car associated with the man was stopped on Grant Line Road in another high-risk stop. I got to this one a little quicker in time to see the last occupant of the car taken into custody. I had a nice vantage point across the street where I could get a good view of the action without getting in.
It was kind of a wild day from one felony stop to the next. Got a couple of good shots and best part no one was hurt and few more bad guys are off Tracy Streets. the line of fire.
