A Eureka man who allegedly committed grand theft auto was hauled back to the county seat and booked into the county lockup after he was caught fleeing through Fortuna this morning.

Jason David Johnson, 27, was taken into custody by Fortuna Police Department personnel after a brief pursuit on southbound Highway 101. FPD was alerted to a stolen car which Johnson was allegedly driving at about 6:50 a.m. this morning — evidently the Eureka-area victim had just jump-started their vehicle and was putting away jumper cables when the vehicle was stolen.

During the pursuit, which stretched between the Palmer Boulevard and Kenmar Road exits, Johnson apparently threw 7.9 grams of suspected methamphetamine out of the vehicle, which FPD later collected. Upon searching the vehicle, the cops found an additional 10.6 grams of meth packaged for sale, along with several prescription medications also packaged for sale.

Before being transported to county jail, Johnson was treated at Redwood Memorial Hospital in Fortuna after he admitted to consuming a baggie of meth, according to a release by FPD sergeant Charles Ellebrecht.

As a wanted parolee at large, Johnson is not eligible for bail, and was further booked on charges of possession of meth for sales, possession of prescription meds without a prescription, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of stolen property, transportation of a controlled substance and driving under the influence.
