A woman who police say was armed and dangerous was arrested on Tuesday after being on the run from police.
On Jan. 10, 29-year-old Christina Mejia of Fresno was arrested for possessing and firing a gun five times in the 5000 block of East Lane Avenue, said Sgt. Robert Gonzales of the Fresno Police Department.
Mejia was booked into Fresno County Jail and was later released with a promise to appear in court, but she failed to appear. She was then added to the list of wanted subjects on Crime Stoppers.
She has been on the run from officers since Jan. 22, Gonzales said, after several attempts to arrest her. Mejia changed her appearance after discovering she has been added to the wanted list, Gonzales said.
