On Monday, September 6, at about 2 p.m., Kings County deputies found themselves dispatched to a mobile home at 23559 Fremont Ave. in Lemoore to investigate possible trespassing.

The property owner told deputies that a mobile home that sits on his property has been vacant for the past two years. He regularly checks on the property and Monday, when he arrived, he noticed a black 2010 Chrysler 300 and a green 2012 Kawasaki Ninja in the driveway of the mobile home.

The owner further noticed a window air conditioning had been installed and was running.

When deputies arrived, they began knocking on the doors and windows of the mobile home and announced for anyone inside to exit the residence. Initially, no one responded. After several minutes and after deputies made multiple announcements, a female suspect, Eileen Malicsi, exited the residence. Malicsi stated she had been asleep and there was no one else inside the residence.

Deputies and K-9 Bluz began searching the mobile home to make sure there was no one else inside. During the search, Bluz alerted to an area located between the couch and the wall. The K-9 began pawing at the carpet, and as the carpet was peeled back, a male’s voice could be heard from underneath the floor.

The male stated he would give up and would come out. Bluz continued to paw at the area, and part of the floor caved in, revealing a small square cut out that led underneath the mobile home. A subject named Arthur Madrid crawled out of the space and was placed into custody.

Deputies determined that Malicsi had five Kings County warrants issued for her arrest. The charges included possession of a controlled substance, driving without a valid driver’s license, failure to appear in court, identity theft, and check fraud. The total bail for the warrants was $60,000, with one being no bail.

Both subjects said a mutual friend had shown them the property during an interview and allowed them to stay there. They had been living in the mobile home for approximately two weeks.

During a search of the residence, three rounds of .223 Remington rounds were located. Madrid admitted he had located the ammunition and planned to dispose of it. Madrid was a convicted felon.

Malicsi was booked into Kings County Jail for her five outstanding warrants and trespassing. Her bail was set at $65,000. Madrid was booked into Kings County Jail on the charges of trespassing, resisting arrest, and being a convicted felon in possession of ammunition. His bail was set at $25,000.
