Wanted for repeatedly burglarizing elderly victim’s home, Anderson man arrested
REDDING, Calif. — An Anderson man who was wanted in connection with multiple burglaries of an elderly Redding resident’s home was apprehended just hours after Redding PD issued a wanted flyer asking for the public’s help locating him.
LEADING THE SCNS HEADLINES:
As part of an ongoing investigation into multiple burglaries that targeted an elderly victim, Redding PD issued a wanted flyer on social media around 9 a.m. yesterday morning.
Less than twelve hours later, at around 8 p.m., RPD updated that with the public’s help and tips provided to the department, Anderson police officers located Murray and took him into custody.
After his arrest, Murray was booked into the Shasta County Jail in Redding on suspicion of burglary and obstructing/delaying a peace officer.
Online jail records indicate that as of this report, Murray remained in custody in lieu of $51,000 bail or bond.
“The Redding Police Department would like to thank the Anderson Police Department and the citizens who provided information about Murray,” RPD said after the swift arrest.
