Authorities from multiple agencies spent nearly an hour searching a Lodi neighborhood for two men initially believed to be parolees-at-large.
Around 9 a.m., a Lodi police officer spotted a man he thought was a parolee-at-large, according to Lodi Police Sgt. Eric Versteeg. When the officer traied to make contact, the man fled into the backyards of several homes, Versteeg said.
Several other officers responded and searched multiple properties near the intersection of Stockton and Locust streets.
Within 20 minutes, officers spotted a second suspect on the roof of a home, Versteeg said. The man climbed down and was taken into custody.
Javier Maximino, 23, was booked into Lodi Police Department jail on suspicion of obstructing a police officer and violating parole.
Officers continued searching the area for the first suspect they recognized as a parolee-at-large, Versteeg said.
Members of the United States Marshals and a Lodi Police K9 unit arrived to assist with the search.
Authorities spent 30 minutes going house to house and searching backyards for the suspect, but were unable to locate anyone.
