Auburn police searching for man who eluded authorities

Brocker, David.JPGAuburn police are on the look out for David Brocker, who earlier this week fled from authorities into a Placer County canyon.

Police said that they arrived at Brocker's Auburn residence on Tuesday to perform a probation-parole visit. While there, they allegedly found heroin, according to a police press release.

Brocker, 25, fled in a vehicle. In the process, he attempted to strike two officers and hit a parked car and part of an apartment building, police said.

His vehicle was later recovered at an apartment complex in the 100 block of Lubeck Road. An officer spotted him behind the complex and gave chase.

Officers followed Brocker into a canyon behind the complex. Personnel from the California Highway Patrol air operation, the Placer County Sheriff's Office, California State Parks and CalFire assisted in searching for Brocker but he is still at large.

He is wanted for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, possession of heroin and hit and run.
