OAKLAND (AP) – A man accused of leading police on a low-speed chase from Oakdale to Modesto has been arrested.
Jerry DePalma, 48, and accomplice Irvin Turpitt, 51, allegedly took the 25-ton vehicle from Brown Sheet Metal and Mechanical in Oakdale.
Police say DePalma eventually jumped from the forklift, which has a top speed of 25 mph, and ran into a nearby orchard. He was located and officers used a stun gun to bring him into custody.
The suspects may have been trying to sell the forklift for scrap.
Turpitt is still at large.
