On 10/27/2018, at approximately 1800 Hours, TAGNET Detectives observed a black sedan near Mooney Blvd. and Kaweah Avenue, in violation of the California Vehicle Code. TAGNET Detectives conducted an enforcement traffic stop on the vehicle, which was confirmed to be a stolen vehicle out of Lemoore, CA. As the vehicle yielded to the right side of the roadway, a male subject, later identified as Jason Cross, exited the vehicle and fled west bound from the scene.

Inside the vehicle, Detectives located burglary tools and heroin packaged for sales. Cross was also found to have two active arrest warrants for heroin sales and California Vehicle Code violations.
