Staff Reports

A California parolee was taken into custody on Monday morning after Douglas County authorities received a tip that he was living in a County Road apartment in Minden.

Sergio Antonio Arauza, 27, was reported to be in Minden by the California Parole Apprehension Team. According to the team, there was a felony parole warrant with full extradition out on Arauza.

Investigators arrived at the apartment, but no one answered the door. One of the investigators went to Arauza’s mother’s workplace and got the key and permission to look for him.

Investigators entered the apartment at 9:28 a.m. and saw Arauza standing in the kitchen. He complied and was taken into custody without incident.
