A parolee was arrested today on suspicion of possessing a stolen car in Cathedral City.
David Olivera, 29, of Cathedral City, was arrested around 8:45 a.m. in the 68600 block of D Street, said Sgt. Dave Hatfield of the Cathedral City Police Department.
An officer tried to pull over a black Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck in the area of Van Fleet and E streets, when the driver got out and fled on foot, Hatfield said.
The officer remained with two young girls who were inside the car and broadcast a description of the suspect, he said.
Other officers responding to the area found Olivera after a 15-minute search, the sergeant said.
