COTTONWOOD, Calif. - A chase on the ground and from the air helped Shasta County deputies arrest a wanted man on Thursday, all while he was handcuffed.

The Shasta County Sheriff’s office says the chase stemmed from a call about a suspicious person at a Cottonwood home on 20700 Second St.

A deputy arrived at the neighborhood shortly before 2 p.m. to check out the scene, and at the block? 25-year-old Andrew Mcleod, of Anderson.

Deputies say Mcleod has been on their radar due to his existing arrest warrants, one felony, and four misdemeanors.

Shortly after the deputy encountered Mcleod, he was placed under arrest and hand-cuffed. However, after the arrest, the deputy took a few moments to collect Mcleod’s property. As soon as the deputy stepped away from the suspect, he ran away and through people’s backyards. During this time, Mcleod’s hands were still secured behind his back in handcuffs.

The deputy chased after him but eventually lost sight of Mcleod.

A perimeter was set up by deputies and a request was made for a California Highway Patrol (CHP) airship and a K-9 to try to locate Mcleod.

The airship and a Cal Fire Law Enforcement officer arrived on the scene and began checking out the neighborhood, while Redding Police K-9 “Chase” began tracking Mcleod.

K-9 Chase followed Mcleod’s trail roughly 375 yards through neighborhood streets and yards before he was found hiding in some dense brush of a vacant field on Seales Lane.

Mcleod was taken into custody without incident, while still wearing the handcuffs. In addition to his prior arrest warrants, he is charged with delaying and or obstructing a peace officer. He is currently in Shasta County Jail.
