ATWATER — Atwater police reported the arrest of a 22-year-old man Wednesday who was wanted on four outstanding warrants.
Cesar Fabien Montoya was taken into custody about 10:30 a.m. at a Castle Drive residence, according to Lt. Sam Joseph.
Montoya was wanted on suspicion of violating his probation, possession of stolen property, possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana for sale.
Officers Dave Sarginson, Adolfo Lomeli and Jesse Mraz went to the residence and were given permission by the owner to enter. After entering the home, the officers found Montoya trying to hide inside, Joseph said.
Joseph said a tip from a citizen led to the arrest. He commended the witness, and the officers for taking a wanted person into custody.
Montoya was booked at the Merced County Jail.
