A Bulldog gang member suspected of auto theft was arrested in central Fresno early Tuesday morning after leading police officers on a car chase and foot pursuit, Fresno police said.
Violent Crime Impact Team officers were patrolling near Garland Avenue and Abby Street about 12:50 a.m. when they saw a Toyota Solara and suspected it was stolen. As they attempted to get behind the car to run its license plate the car attempted to flee at high speeds.
The Toyota was pursued to the area near Pontiac Way and Clark Street, where police arrested Bulldog gang member Keith Stump, 22, of Fresno after he abandoned the car and ran.
Stump was booked into the Fresno County Jail for multiple auto theft related charges, including possession of stolen property and resisting arrest.
