Jason Wayne Cloyd, 30 – the burglary suspect who got away Thursday – was arrested in bed shortly before 2 a.m. Friday.

Manteca Police Officer Ian Osborn went to his home in the 200 block of South Lincoln Avenue and transported him to the Manteca jail.

A known Manteca felon, Cloyd was reportedly one of the four burglary suspects that led police detective sergeant Lewis Clark on a wild pursuit at 10 a.m. on Thursday on Jack Tone Road from north of French Camp Road to a subdivision at Louise and Cottage avenues.

Clark was able to identify Cloyd from seeing him jump from the fleeing vehicle at the corner of Yosemite and Button avenues when the driver of the car got stuck in traffic and drove up on the sidewalk to distance herself from the detective’s pursuing Ford Taurus.

Cloyd was charged with felony possession of a firearm, grand theft of a firearm in the taking of the Remington Wingmaster 870, burglary of a south Stockton home, possession of stolen property, conspiracy and a felon being in possession of a fire arm.

Also taken in the burglary were drawers of expensive jewelry.  The two men and two women were reportedly interrupted at the elite farm home when house cleaners drove up the driveway.  Speeding down Jack Tone Road they crossed paths with the Manteca officer who said he was going to warn them about their speed – not knowing they had just been involved in a home burglary.

Cloyd spent the day Friday in the Manteca jail and was transported to the San Joaquin County Jail Friday night where his bail was set at $174,450.

The grand theft of the shotgun was a new charge also leveled at the other individuals jailed in the case.
