MARYSVILLE, Calif. - The Marysville Police Department is searching for a wanted felon who escaped on foot following a high-speed chase with officers.

Officers with the department attempted to stop a white Hyundai sedan for speeding in the area of East 11th Street and Ramirez Street around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. 

The driver of the Hyundai, identified as Jonathon Mims, 28, of Marysville, initially stopped. 

As officers were speaking to Mims, they noticed that he smelled like alcohol and marijuana. When they asked him to step out of the vehicle, he sped away from the scene. 

Officers went after Mims for eight blocks until Mims lost control of his vehicle at the intersection of Sampson Street and East 19th Street, striking a fence, power pole and water agency pump house. 

Mim's vehicle came to rest on the driver-side door with a female passenger trapped inside. 

Mims fled on foot before officers could make their way to the vehicle. Marysville Fire responded and was able to get the female passenger out of the vehicle. 

After a search of the car, officers found Mim's wallet and identification, a small amount of marijuana and a loaded black revolver near the driver's door in the grass. 

Mims is currently wanted for felony evading and felon in possession of a firearm. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Marysville Police Department at (530) 749-3900.
