ANDERSON, Calif. - On Jan 24 at approximately 10 p.m. an officer with the Anderson Police Department attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a vehicle after he observed the vehicle nearly cause a traffic collision due to an unsafe turning movement. The vehicle failed to yield and a high-speed pursuit ensued.

Police say the vehicle fled from officers out Olinda Road and into the Happy Valley area. The vehicle left the roadway in the area of Palm Avenue and Monte Vista Drive and became disabled. The driver of the vehicle fled into a large field.

Officers requested the assistance of the Shasta County Sheriff's Office and a California Highway Patrol helicopter.

Officials say officers deployed K-9 Aero to begin a track from the vehicle. K-9 Aero subsequently tracked the suspect to a carport of a residence about 400' from the suspect vehicle. There officers found the suspect hiding inside a vehicle parked in the carport. The suspect then surrendered to officers without further incident.

According to police, the suspect was identified as Levi Robert Mcleod, 26, of Anderson. Mcleod had an active felony warrant for his arrest and is on felony probation out of Shasta County for a domestic violence charge.

Police say Mcleod was arrested on charges of felony evading a peace officer, evading a peace officer on the wrong side of the roadway, driving without a valid driver's license, possession of drug paraphernalia, and violating the terms and conditions of his probation.

Mcleod was booked into the Shasta County Jail.
