Fresno police arrested a man suspected of snatching a woman’s purse at a Fresno restaurant and bar in March.
Timothy Lazalde was arrested at his home on the 5900 block of East McKenzie Avenue in southeast Fresno on Thursday following tips from the public. He is suspected of stealing the purse from O’Sullivan’s on March 17.
Lazalde’s girlfriend, Lorena Herrera, lied about him not being at home when police knocked on their door, police said. Because of that, Herrera was arrested for harboring a wanted felon.
Lazalde was arrested on suspicion of grand theft, resisting arrest and a no-bail felony warrant issued in Nevada.
