07/28 - Fail to Identify (Fugitive) - 6800 block of Oak Crest Drive: At 12:28 p.m. an officer observed a male attempting to open a locked vehicle in front of a residence. Upon contacting the male, the officer asked why he was trying to enter the vehicle. The male stated that he was opening the car for a friend who was not on the property. The male identified himself and gave a separate name for the friend. The male then walked into the residence before the officer could approach him. The homeowner came out to inquire what was happening. When asked what the name of the other male was, the homeowner gave the name that the previous male (suspect) had said was his friend. A warrant check revealed that the male was wanted out of Mansfield P.D. for three misdemeanor warrants. The homeowner stated that the suspect would not come out as he did not want to be arrested. The homeowner also refused to allow officers access to the home to take the suspect into custody.
