Scanner traffic beginning at 10:43 p.m. indicates that a short police pursuit occurred on Old Stage Highway near Gualala.

The suspect vehicle was reportedly a blue side-by-side occupied by a single driver wearing a blue helmet. They failed to comply after an officer tried to pull it over for having no plates.

The vehicle reportedly got up to 70 miles/hour and crossed over double yellow lines before successfully evading officers. Units are continuing to check the area for any sign of the vehicle or suspect.

I like to think of myself as a journalist for the everyman. Journalism has become a craft practiced largely by the urban elite. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
