From the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department:
“At approximately 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday 12/17/19, Yuba County Sheriff Deputies arrested 34-year-old Anthony Benjamin Duran Jr of Linda on an outstanding warrant after responding to a call reporting a subject stealing a package from the front of a residence in the 1500 block of Tadpole Way in East Linda.
A neighbor called the Yuba County Sheriff’s Department to report the suspect, later identified as Duran, had just taken a package from his neighbor’s home and was running on Cobblestone Drive toward the elementary school.
Upon deputies’ arrival to the area, they spotted Duran, who tossed the package when he saw the deputies and continued to flee on foot. Deputies pursued the suspect to the area of Park Ave and Hammonton Smartsville Rd where he was located and detained after jumping a fence into the backyard of a residence.
Duran was arrested on a warrant out of Yuba City for a violation of probation and booked into Yuba County Jail. The package was returned to the victim, who declined charges for the Petty Theft.”
