A 37-year-old Tulare County man was arrested on suspicion of several charges after an incident on May 7.

At around 9:15 a.m., officers with the Porterville Police Department responded to Sierra Minit Mart for a man who stole alcohol.

When officers found the suspect, Andres Najera, he reportedly refused to comply with orders and tried to leave. Eventually, he was caught, but gave the wrong name, police say.

“Najera provided a family member’s identity as his own to avoid two misdemeanor arrest warrants,” a department news release says.

He was booked at the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office on suspicion of shoplifting, identity theft, resisting arrest and arrest warrants.

His bail is set at $50K.
