MADERA COUNTY – Two women wanted on felony no bail warrants were arrested last night in North Fork.
Sheriff John Anderson cites the vigilance of impassioned citizens now willing to phone in tips, not only about suspicious activity, but the whereabouts of fugitives in Madera County.
A late night anonymous tip to the Madera County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday, Aug. 13, led Deputy Joshua Cushing to a home on Road 222 in North Fork where Lena Marie Walker, 23, who is wanted on a felony no bail warrant in Fresno for vehicle theft, and Rebecca Rachel Hodges, 24, wanted on a felony no bail warrant for a probation violation, were both taken into custody.
Walker was turned over to Fresno County authorities shortly before 8:30 a.m. this morning.
Hodges, who is on probation for felony evading, is being held in Madera County Department of Corrections without bail.
Sheriff Anderson urges anyone who sees suspicious activity or has information about wanted fugitives to call 559-675-7770.
