PROBATIONER WITH 3 WARRANTS ARRESTED BY LANCASTER DEPUTIES AFTER FOOT PURSUIT
A man on probation with three outstanding warrants was arrested after a foot pursuit by Lancaster Station Deputies. At approximately 6pm on Sunday, January 27, 2019, Lancaster Station patrol deputies stopped two men for riding their bicycles at night without headlights. While both men were originally cooperative, one man, later identified as 21 year old Malachi Wiley, became uncooperative when deputies found what appeared to be methamphetamine in his pocket. The suspect ripped his hands away from the deputy detaining him and began to run away. The deputy pursued the suspect on foot, changing directions several times across West Avenue I. When the suspect realized the deputy was still behind him, he abruptly changed directions once again, colliding into the back of a moving vehicle. The suspect was then detained. The suspect was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine. He was transported and booked at Lancaster Station. The suspect is on probation for burglary. Additionally, he has a “No Bail” warrant for resisting arrest, a $100,000 warrant for carrying a concealed firearm and a third warrant, for $100,000 for child endangerment. A job well done by Lancaster Station patrol deputies for taking a suspect with a lengthy criminal history off our streets!
