Mariposa County, CA – A wanted fugitive for “serious crimes’ is now behind bars in Mariposa County.

Sheriff’s officials report that 29-year-old Daniel Kapumau, who was wanted for kidnapping, domestic violence, and evading a peace officer, was recently apprehended after a brief foot pursuit. Assisting in the deputies chase were a K9 unit and detectives who were able to safely handcuff him.

Mariposa County Sheriff Jeremy Briese praised the public for their assistance too, stating, “A fantastic job by everyone; my staff who remained vigilant and determined to find and arrest Mr. Kapumau, and to the community assistance, you played a crucial role in the successful resolution of this case.

Kapumau was placed on $100,000 bail.
