Police Seek Man Linked To Massive Crime Spree In Woodland
WOODLAND (CBS13) – Police in Woodland are looking to put away suspects linked to a massive burglary spree within the city.
Over 150 residential and vehicle burglaries were reported within Woodland from November to January. Arrests were made in January, causing the number of reported burglaries to plummet to less than 30 come February.
Still, the Woodland Police Department says one suspect linked to the burglaries has managed elude them – a man by the name of Mario Lopez.
Last week, CBS13 reported on how Lopez turned himself in to authorities at Yolo County jail, only to leave after after no one came to get him.
Police are now asking for the public’s help in catching Lopez. However, Lopez is considered armed and dangerous and should not be contacted if scene. If you do see him, you are asked to call the Woodland Police Department at (530) 666-2411. A reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of Lopez.
The burglaries targeted electronics, money, jewelry, tools and firearms, police say. Much of the property stolen was returned once the first round of arrests were made.
