Suspected burglar arrested after trying to hide in Hillcrest canyon

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Police on Sunday arrested a man for an outstanding warrant after a police officer driving in Hillcrest happened to recognize him.

Just after 1 p.m., an officer was driving south on Bachman Place, which runs uphill from Mission Valley into Hillcrest, when he saw 52-year-old Bruce Stone, whom he knew to have a warrant for felony burglary, said San Diego police Sgt. Robert Hawkins.

The officer attempted to make contact, and Stone fled into the brush in a nearby canyon, Hawkins said.

A helicopter, a police dog unit and other officers were called in to search for Stone.

He ultimately was caught, arrested and taken to San Diego Central Jail, Hawkins said.
