A man led police on a chase from inside a stolen vehicle Friday afternoon, then ditched the car and tried to swim away from officers in the Sacramento River. Esteban Araujo, 24, faces charges on the possession of stolen property, vehicle theft, evading and being an ex-felon with ammunition. Police first tried to stop the car just before 3:40 p.m., near West El Camino Avenue and Interstate 5. Araujo wouldn't pull over, and led officers all the way to Vernon Road and Garden Highway, police said. Finally, Araujo got out of the car, took off running and tried to swim away.
