On August 27, 2022: MPD learned that a subject with 13 outstanding warrants was hiding in a house in Carmel. The suspect had been involved in a vehicle pursuit with Marina PD and had fled from Monterey Police Officers during an attempted arrest just days prior. MPD officers responded to Carmel and were able to confirm the suspect was at the residence. MPD coordinated with Carmel PD and the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office to set a perimeter to prevent the suspect from escaping. After over an hour, the suspect surrendered and officers arrested him. The officers demonstrated excellent teamwork and initiative to apprehend the suspect. Their positive attitude and dedication to service reflected greatly upon themselves and the high standards of the Monterey Police Department.
