Suspect in Attempted Murder Captured After Fleeing Police
…EPD patrol and POP Unit officers…arrested Charlie Kangas [yesterday] after he fled from an officer in the area of Fairfield and West Hawthorne Streets. Kangas jumped several fences but was located hiding behind a nearby residence after a search involving several officers.
Kangas was wanted for attempted murder (664/187 PC) stemming from a recent stabbing in Eureka. Suspected methamphetamine and several needles found on him.
As you can tell from his photo, Kangas wasn’t too happy after finding out what he was being arrested for.
Kangas is one of Eureka’s serial crooks and our community is safer with him behind bars.
