A routine traffic stop turned into a short pursuit and a call for the CHP helicopter midday Tuesday. Nevada County Sheriff Captain Jeff Pettit says a deputy attempted to initiate a vehicle stop in the area of Ridge Road and Hughes Road and the vehicle refused to yield for the officer.
As soon as the vehicle refused to stop, the CHP was requested to assist by air.
Deputies continued to search the area but were unable to locate the suspect. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office.
