Man outruns the law in Lindsay

LINDSAY – Police officers always try to get their man, and on the night Sunday, Dec. 17 he was just too fast.
While patrolling the area of Sweetbriar and Hermosa Lindsay officers David Alcantar and Dakota Kirman observed a male subject of Lindsay, and Marcie Manriquez, 28, of Lindsay, walking near Fastrip.
Both officers attempted to contact the male subject, but he leg bailed and jump into the housing units around the 200 block of N. Sweetbriar. A record check indicated that the male subject had several misdemeanor warrants for his arrest. The area was checked for the male but Lindsay PD came up empty. A record check for Manriquez showed she had an active warrant for receiving stolen property for $60,000. Officers arrested Manriquez and she was transported to the Visalia Pre-trail facility.
