Fugitive arrested at gun point

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Sheriff's investigators were in National City Tuesday afternoon where they detained a fugitive at a home in the 4100 block of Plaza Boulevard.

Undercover San Diego County Sheriff's deputies say they received a tip that a warrant suspect would be hiding at his mothers home in National City.

Deputies called for uniformed officers as back up to help set up a perimeter around the suspect. Deputies say the 31-year-old man they were looking for is a known runner.

Deputies and police K-9's quickly surrounded the house. Once in place, the 31-year-old suspect safely surrendered to authorities. Deputies say he will be going back to jail on a warrant for violating his probation in a drug related crime. They also say that they did not find anything illegal in the house. 

Authorities have not yet released the suspect's name.
