Police nab suspect on numerous charges including theft, burglary

A 24-year-old Hanford man was arrested by Lemoore police officers on numerous charges, including possession of stolen property, auto theft, vehicle burglary, shoplifting, possession of heroin, burglary, and the use of a stolen credit card.

Police arrested suspect Tyre Hudgins on Friday, Dec. 4 after reports from a local beauty shop located at the Save Mart Shopping Center that Hudgins may have been a person that had stolen hair products from the store the previous day and was back in the area. Initially unable to find the suspect, they later located him at the nearby KFC restaurant. After contacting him, it was determined that Hudgins was wearing the hair products that were stolen the day before. He was placed under arrest for possession of stolen property.

Police continued the search and he was found to be in possession of several ID cards and property which linked him to a stolen vehicle case taken by Lemoore Police Department the previous night. Hudgins was positively identified as the person that stole a vehicle from a local bar and then attempted to use the victim's credit card at a store inHanford. The vehicle was recovered that same night in the store's parking lot by Hanford Police Department.

Hudgins was also in possession of a lap-top computer. At the time of this arrest the computer was checked through the stolen property system, but was not reported stolen. Later, this same afternoon, the theft of a laptop was reported from a vehicle parked in a neighborhood nearLemooreHigh School. This lap top was determined to be the same lap top that Hudgins was in possession of when he was arrested.

Thanks to good communication between, officers, and local law enforcement agencies, along with the lap top owner's ability to provide the serial number to his property, several cases that appeared to have little or no leads were solved.  With the Holiday Season upon us, the Lemoore Police Department wants to remind citizens to keep their property in secure areas, lock all vehicle doors, and not leave vehicles running unattended.
