Tracy police were unable to locate a man following a foot chase in the area of Chaplin Way and Christy Street on Tuesday, Oct. 9.

The man was driving a vehicle in the area at around 1:20 p.m. when he allegedly jumped out and ran, leaving the vehicle running in the street.

A resident on Christy Street called 911 and stated that a Latino man had jumped the fence to her yard and was going through her garbage can in an effort to hide inside of it.

When police arrived to check the residence, the man was already gone and hasn’t been seen since.

The Tracy Police Department received 202 calls for service Tuesday, Oct. 9. The following is a sample of those calls.
