Wanted Man Found In Tree

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.
