Police made at least one arrest after spotting an allegedly stolen vehicle at about 11:40 a.m. Monday, Oct. 8. Police tracked the allegedly stolen Honda Accord from near Holly Drive and Eaton Avenue until two people bailed out of the car near Parker and Eaton avenues. One was arrested nearby, and police found the car intact, though the stereo was reportedly missing. Information about the person arrested was not available.

The Tracy Police Department received 167 calls for service Monday, Oct. 8. The following is a sample of those calls.

7:10 a.m.: A car with three flat tires was found parked on the railroad tracks near MacArthur Drive and 11th Street. Someone who knew the registered driver told police the driver overdosed on drugs on Friday, Oct. 5, and had been in the hospital since, so it wasn’t known who might have parked the car on the tracks.
