MADERA, Calif. (AP) - A suspected car thief spray-painted his face black in an attempt to evade Central California police.

The Fresno Bee reports Monday that 23-year-old Jose Espinoza ran from police after being caught with a stolen car.

Officers caught up to Espinoza and arrested him Saturday night with his face painted black.

Police booked Espinoza into the Madera County Department of Corrections, where he remained Monday morning. It was not immediately known if Espinoza has an attorney.
