Palm Springs Police have captured their man.
They spotted 31 year old Anderzal Lopez Morales around 4 Thursday afternoon in a car near Belardo and Alejo Roads on the West side of town.
But as officers spoke with him, Morales hit the gas pedal and took off, pulling an officer a short distance. The officer was not hurt.
A short time later, Morales crashed his car and ran.
He managed to evade police for a few hours, before officers arrested him just before 9 Thursday night as he tried to hide in a tree near Belardo and Chino Roads.
Morales can add more charges to list of things he was wanted for already, including child cruelty, shoplifting and importing controlled substances into California.
