Two people were arrested in Salinas early Monday morning after their vehicle failed to stop for a routine traffic violation, the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office said. Deputies attempted to pull a car over for a routine traffic stop on Main Street at 3:03 a.m. but when the vehicle failed to yield, deputies pursued it. The driver fled the vehicle on foot but left the car in drive, deputies said.

The driver, Michael Galope, 46, from Salinas, was taken into custody for felony evading, resisting arrest, DUI and other charges. Galope was also a wanted felon, deputies said. The passenger in the car, Cyrebe Urquidez, 42, from Salinas, was also taken into custody after deputies found two glass smoking pipes, typically used for smoking methamphetamine. She was on also probation, deputies said.
