APD Arrests Wanted Man After Foot Pursuit Sunday Evening

A wanted man was caught after a chase by Anderson Police Sunday evening. A little after 8 O’clock an officer near the Barney Street Bridge spotted 47-year-old Santana Medina, who had six active warrants. Medina saw the officer too, and immediately fled into a field near Anderson Creek. With help from a CHP helicopter, Medina was found in the creek underneath some thick bushes. In July Medina had been chased by officers and when they finally caught him he was no longer wearing a backpack. Surveillance footage was found that showed Medina hiding the backpack in a dumpster. It allegedly contained 3 Ounces of Meth and a replica handgun. He since had failed to appear in court for that arrest.
