Pimnunihus Cennabe of Siskiyou County had been hiding in remote locations
A routine patrol near a service station led local police to crack a case which had frustrated state authorities for over three years.
On Wednesday at about 8 p.m., the Fortuna Police Department’s Brian Taylor was working uniformed patrol near the Chevron Gas Station on Main Street when he contacted a male subject who he identified as wanted fugitive Pimnunihus Cenname — a man listed as a high escape risk individual who was considered to be armed and dangerous.
The 32-year-old’s identity was confirmed as a wanted parolee out of Siskiyou County, who had been convicted of first degree robbery and was sought by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation since November of 2008. Taylor took the suspect into custody without incident and took him to county jail.
According to an FPD release, Cenname told law enforcement that he had been on the run and had eluded capture by staying in remote locations since 2008.
