Be careful who you ask for driving directions

On Monday, April 19 a man took it upon himself to aid police in his own arrest. According to Lt. Ciszek, 31-year-old Kristian Urquieta of Orange got out of the passenger seat of a car and approached officers, identifying himself and asking for directions for him and his friend in the driver’s seat. Police discovered that not only was Mr. Urquieta wanted for an outstanding warrant, but the car they were driving had license plates revealing the car was stolen out of Fullerton. Police quickly arrested Mr. Urquieta for the warrant and for possession of a stolen vehicle. While Mr. Urquieta might have been slow on the uptake, his friend hightailed it out of the car and got away from police before he could be arrested.
