Theft suspect in custody after hours-long police search in Indio

A theft suspect is in custody after evading officers, leading to an hours-long search in Indio Wednesday afternoon.

Authorities searched an Indio neighborhood today for a man wanted on felony warrants who took off running when an officer spotted him.   

A patrol officer was on Deglet Noor Avenue near Requa Street around noon when he noticed a man walking in the area who had active theft and weapons warrants, according to Indio police spokesman Ben Guitron.   

The man fled when he saw the officer. 

A California Highway Patrol helicopter crew was assisting Indio police with the search, Guitron said.   

Guitron told News Channel 3 shortly before 2:45 p.m., officers were able to locate and arrest the suspect on Deglet Noor St. between Bliss and Requa.
