Suspects nabbed in Kerman after one bolts from deputies

The Fresno BeeMay 22, 2014 

Two wanted suspects were arrested in Kerman on Wednesday after they were sought for alleged involvement in crimes ranging from vehicle theft to running from law enforcement.

After spotting a suspicious vehicle parked in front of a residence on the 700 block of Almond Street, Kerman police and an off-duty Fresno County sheriff's deputy approached the home and saw Brent Allen Percy, 43, run out the back door. A short time later, he was arrested down the street. Detectives said Percy was a crime partner with Melvin Robinson, who was arrested earlier this month for thefts targeting farms and rural areas of southern Fresno County, said Chris Curtice, sheriff's spokesman.

Percy was booked into Fresno County Jail on an outstanding warrant of felony evading, Curtice said. He was also booked on suspicion of possessing drugs for sale.

Inside the Kerman home, authorities found suspect Kassandra Nichole Potts, 23.

Potts was arrested on five outstanding felony warrants for several counts of vehicle theft and possessing stolen property, and related theft and narcotics charges, Curtice said.
