Byron Morales

Posted: Tuesday, July 9, 2013 2:44 pm

Lodi police are searching for a man they say sped through crowded city streets at speeds up to 70 mph and eventually escaped pursuing officers on Monday.

Byron Morales, 27, is wanted on two felony warrants accusing him of possessing narcotics, stolen property and stealing a car, according to Lodi police.

Officers said they spotted Morales near the intersection of School and Louie streets around 2:30 p.m. When they tried to pull him over, police said, Morales fled in a red Ford Mustang convertible. Officers pursued as Morales flew through stop signs and stoplights, according to police. But after five minutes, the chase became too dangerous and police called it off.

Anyone with information regarding Morales should call the Lodi Police Department at 209-333-6727 or Crime Stoppers at 209-369-2746.
