Fugitive Caught in Banning Police Chase

38-year-old Tury Alvarado was arrested after police say they surrounded him in a field off Highland Springs and Wilson.

A Banning man with felony warrants out for his arrest was behind bars Wednesday, after a multi-agency effort helped reign him in, police reported.

Tury Alvarado, 38, was arrested Tuesday after police got a call of a suspicious person in the area of the Linda Vista Mobile Home Park, on Wilson Street near Highland Springs Avenue.

"When officers arrived, they saw a male ...who fit the description given by the reporting party, jump over the cinderblock wall on the north side of the park, onto Wilson Street," Banning police reported.

"He ran from officers when they tried to contact him and ran into the field north of Wilson and East of Highland Springs," Lt. Mike West said.  "A perimeter was set up with the help of CHP and Beaumont PD and he was taken into custody in the field."

Once in custody, officers realized that Alvarado had two felony warrants out for his arrest, police said.

Jail records indicate that those warrants had to do with burglary and theft charges.  He was booked into the Banning jail for those things, along with resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance.

His bail was set at $25,000, records indicated.

This may be wishful thinking, but perhaps we KEEP him in jail this time?

Great point! With trying to elude officers, and 2 prior warrants, why is bail offered at any amount?
