A vehicle pursuit in Ukiah’s Westside turned to a ground search after two men reportedly foot bailed near the golf course adjacent to Todd Grove Park.

Scanner traffic indicated that two white male adults (one described as wearing a “San Francisco” hat) fled police after they attempted a stop near Yokayo Elementary around 3:15 p.m.

The men reportedly ran onto the golf course towards the area of Low Gap Park.

Ukiah Police Department, Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office, and the California Highway Patrol have converged on the area and have deployed an unmanned aerial vehicle to search for the men from above.

UPDATE 4:09 p.m.: The suspects are still at large. Law enforcement reported they located a magazine in the vehicle leading them to believe the suspects might be armed.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. 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 matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
