A 19-year old man working one of the rides at the carnival on the San Angelo Fairgrounds was arrested by San Angelo police Wednesday. He was being sought in Arlington for an outstanding aggravated robbery warrant. Detectives with the SAPD’s Special Operations Section received information from the Arlington Police Department Wednesday that wanted fugitive Kahleigh M. Crittenden was allegedly working for the carnival in San Angelo.
At approximately 4:30 p.m., SOS and Criminal Investigations Division detectives positively identified Crittenden operating one of the carnival rides on the midway.
Crittenden attempted to flee when approached by two detectives who identified themselves as police officers. He was immediately caught and restrained. After a brief struggle, Crittenden was arrested and transported to the Tom Green County Jail without incident.
Several plain-clothed officers were present during the apprehension to ensure carnival goers’ safety. No one was injured during the arrest.
