On 10-11-17, at approximately 9:38 a.m. Ripon Police Officer Justin Qualle was on patrol in the 700 block of N. Jack Tone Rd. when he observed a suspicious 2007 Honda Accord. A registration check confirmed the vehicle was recently reported as being stolen out of the City of Lodi. The vehicle abruptly pulled off the roadway and the occupants exited the vehicle.

As RPD Officer Qualle attempted to take the driver, Jamie Castaneda, into custody he broke away from the officer and ran into an orchard across from the Ripon Tractor Supply Store.
