Modesto Parole Violator Captured

Sonora, CA — A Modesto parole violator was arrested Friday afternoon by Sonora Police after a short chase.

While on the lookout for this week´s “Most Wanted” subject (Anthony Bruce Ortega), an S.P.D. officer noticed a white Honda with a male passenger matching the general description of Ortega.

As the officer pulled in behind the Honda, the vehicle slowed to approximately 5mph. The driver then exited the car and took off running. Eventually the officer captured 34 year old James S. Steeley of Modesto at the Creative Learning Center.

Steeley was charged with violation of parole, obstructing a peace officer and possession of marijuana.
