CHP captures wanted man
The California Highway Patrol apprehended a man who was wanted in Lassen County last week.
On Friday night, Feb. 17, CHP officer Bryan Goings located a vehicle that contained Portola resident Michael Nunes who had a warrant for his arrest.
Goings pulled over the vehicle on westbound Highway 70 near Misery Bar, located between Belden and Rich Bar.
Goings, who was acting on information provided by the Plumas County Sheriffs Office, detained the two men in the car. He was able to confirm that 23-year-old Nunes was a passenger.
CHP officer Robert Boyack arrived to assist Goings, and Nunes was arrested.
The driver of the vehicle was released because he hadn’t broken any laws, according to the CHP.
Nunes was transported to the Plumas County Jail.
