Robbery suspect caught after chase in Merced
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A robbery suspect is in jail Friday, after he led police on a chase down Highway 99 in Merced.
Officers were looking for 38-year-old Adrian Hicks in the area of West 16th Street and "V" Streets. They spotted him driving a white Lexus, but say he sped away when they tried to pull him over.
The pursuit came to an end when police spiked the tires on his vehicle, but the suspect took off running. Police later found him hiding in apartment on Meadows Avenue near Olive.
Hicks was originally wanted for a robbery that happened earlier this month at a local motel. He now faces charges for that crime and for evading police.
