MADERA COUNTY – Sheriff John Anderson is crediting a tip phoned in to Crime Stoppers as leading to the arrest of a Madera man, accused of smashing the front windows of Madera County’s Courthouse in early hours of Feb. 7.
Early Friday morning, Feb. 21, Madera County Detective Adam McEwen arrested 29-year-old Andrew Biscay at the suspect’s home on O Street in Madera.
Two weeks ago, the Sheriff’s Office released surveillance video showing a man throwing two rocks through the front entrance of the courthouse building, shattering one of the glass doors and destroying the side panel of another.
Within days, the Sheriff’s Office received a number of tips, including one from Crime Stoppers. Sheriff Anderson credits that anonymous caller for “helping us get this individual off our streets.”
Biscay, who was on probation for felony evading, felon in possession of ammunition, and violation of a restraining order, was booked for felony vandalism, and remains jailed with bail set $100,000.
