Suspect on Bicycle Decides to Run From Police Instead

By On March 17, 2015

A Van Nuys man riding his bicycle at 4:40 in the morning Friday was pulled over by Burbank Police for a traffic stop.

During the contact the suspect, identified by police as Jesus Gutierrez (19), advised the officers he possibly had an outstanding warrant. At that point, Gutierrez then ran from the police officer, and a short foot pursuit ensured.

Upon being taken into custody, officers discovered that he was in possession of burglary tools and suspected methamphetamine.  The suspect was transported to the Burbank jail where he was booked.  The suspect is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
