Two officers stopped on Highway 99 near 12th Avenue around 2:30 a.m. after noticing a Chevy sedan pulled over. As they walked over, the officers said they noticed the driver of the Chevy removing the sedan’s license plate.

When they got closer, a passenger in the Chevy escaped but the officers were able to detain the driver.
