After being caught stealing clothes from the laundry room of an apartment complex on Sunday, a suspect ran from police and gave a false name, but was ultimately apprehended.

The victim had allegedly seen a female subject stealing clothes from the communal laundry room at an apartment complex on the 400 block of Wayside Drive, said Turlock police spokesperson Sgt. Stephen Webb.

Officers responded just before noon on Sunday, and located the suspect.

The suspect, later identified as Amber Ledezma, 29, ran from officers, but was ultimately apprehended on the 1300 block of Geer Road, said Webb.

When officers contacted Ledezma, she gave the false name of Amber Baker, according to Webb, as she had a felony warrant out of Placer County.

According to the Turlock Police Department, officers also allegedly found that Ledezma was in possession of methamphetamine and allegedly positively identified her as the suspect in an auto theft that occurred on Oct. 30.

Ledezma was arrested for burglary, lying to police officers, auto theft, possession of methamphetamine, and the felony warrant out of Placer County, according to the Turlock Police Department.
