Two persons were arrested on a variety of charges in Kerman yesterday morning after Kerman PD officers and an off-duty deputy spotted the wanted man running out the back of a residence. Arrested were 43 year old Brent Allen Percy and 23 year old Kassandra Nichole Potts.
Early yesterday morning, officers and the deputy observed a suspicious vehicle parked in front of a residence located in the 700 block of Almond St in the City of Kerman.
As they made contact with occupants at the front door of the residence, the deputy observed Percy, a wanted felon, running out the back. A perimeter was quickly established and, after a short time, officers found and arrested Percy down the street.
Officers discovered narcotics and paraphernalia inside the vehicle which belonged to Percy.
Percy was arrested on an outstanding warrant for felony evading, and open charges of possession of narcotics and possession of narcotics for sale.
Potts was discovered inside the residence and arrested on five outstanding felony warrants for several counts of vehicle theft and possession of stolen property, and related theft and narcotics charges.
Both were later booked into the Fresno County Jail.
Ag Task Force detectives had earlier identified Percy as crime partner with Melvin Robinson who was arrested two weeks ago. It is believed the pair had been targeting farms and rural areas in southern Fresno County.
