This morning, May 28, 2022, just after 6:00 AM, an officer noticed the suspect of a prior catalytic converter theft driving near Willow/Herndon. The officer tried pulling the driver over but they sped away and a pursuit began.

During the pursuit, the driver crashed into a signal pole at Palm/Herndon and ran away but officers were able to arrest him in a parking lot nearby.

Officers arrested 30-year-old David Garcia of Fresno for grand theft, evading officers, possession of burglary tools, and for 5 warrants. Garcia has been booked into Fresno County Jail. We would like to thank both the Fresno Police Department and Fresno County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance with this incident.

Due to California’s AB1475, we will not be posting a booking photo of the suspect.
