LIHU'E – Police arrested a wanted Kapa‘a man at the Kaua'i Medical Clinic yesterday afternoon.
Calvin Lopez, age 24, is currently being held at police cellblock in lieu of $2,100 bail.
At about 2 p.m. Tuesday, an off-duty police officer recognized Lopez at the clinic and called for on-duty personnel to assist. However, when Lopez began to leave the facility prior to KPD’s arrival, the off-duty officer approached him. When the officer identified himself, Lopez attempted to flee on foot. After a brief struggle the officer was able to apprehend Lopez until uniformed officers arrived.
A warrant was issued for Lopez’s arrest after he was indicted on June 23, 2011 for second degree forgery, unauthorized possession of confidential personal information, and two counts of fourth degree theft. He was scheduled for arraignment Wednesday morning.
