Early Friday morning, 30 year old Eric Rode Olsen was arrested on a vehicular manslaughter charge due to the death of a passenger after losing control of his 3280i BMW and crashing.

Olsen was reportedly involved in a late Thursday night race on the runway of the Tracy Municipal Airport, during which he lost control of his vehicle. After driving through a fence and over a levee, Olsen and his passengers came to a sharp stop at the bottom of the Delta Mendota Canal.

While Olsen and two of his three passengers escaped the car unharmed, the third, a visitor from Europe, was supposedly trapped inside the sunken car.

A while after, Tracy police received a call reporting that a car had crashed into the canal west of the Tracy Airport, and that a passenger was potentially trapped inside.

The California Highway Patrol, Tracy Fire Department, and San Joaquin County dive team could not locate the missing man, whose name has yet to be released.

This individual is to be presumed dead.

Two men have been arrested for last month's armed robbery of the Uncle Credit Union in Tracy. According to the Tracy Police Department both men are Oakland residents and have warrants in other counties.

Police allege that both men walked into the Uncle Credit Union, at 1960 Grant Line Road, on Sept. 2 brandishing a handgun and an automatic weapon and demanding cash. They left with an undisclosed amount of money.

The two men, Jarvis Johnson, 29, and Cameron Jaclecus Shephard, 31, are in custody at the San Joaquin County Jail. The pair could face felony robbery charges.

Johnson was arrested in Stockton last week with the help of the Stockton Police Department, while Shephard was arrested Thursday in San Leandro with the assistance of the U.S. Marshal's Service, Tracy police said.

Johnson also has a warrant from the Oakland Police Department on suspicion of being a felon carrying a concealed weapon in a vehicle. He is being held on a $190,000 bond.
Shephard has warrants on suspicion of felony robbery from the Solano County Sheriff's Department and from the Davis and Pinole police departments. He is being held without bail.
