Wanted under an active probation warrant, Daniel Jay Romo, 25, fled from officers on Tuesday. The reportedly suicidal man held a knife to his throat as he evaded arrest.

On Thursday, San Luis Obispo County sheriff deputies searched a residence in the Whitley Gardens neighborhood of Paso Robles, where Romo was suspected to be hiding.

Romo again ran from deputies, who apprehended Romo near the 500 block of North Almond Drive in Paso Robles, officials said. He was booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on a charge of violating his probation.


Thought he looked familiar, Googled his name and he was in the news last year in a parole/probation sweep!

Drug addicts now get a free pass in California, at least until they harm others or themselves:(

No one size solution for dealing with drug addicts, maybe no solution at all:(
