Woman arrested for harboring fugitive
A fugitive was apprehended and a woman harboring him arrested Wednesday at a residence in the 3000 block of 18th St.
Officers responded to the residence in reference to felony warrants. Upon knocking on the door, attempting to make contact, a female was heard asking who it was through the door.
When police identified themselves, they asked if Anthony Galloway was at the residence, the woman replied he was not. She was advised by police that charges could be brought against her if Galloway was there and she did not turn him over to them.
After several minutes of conversation through the door, the woman was advised that police were looking for Galloway and that he was believed to be in the residence. The woman stalled for several minutes and continued to tell police the man was not there. She eventually opened the door and gave consent to search the residence.
While searching the residence, a black male, who was verbally identified as Anthony Galloway, 25, or Orange, was found hiding in a bedroom closet.
A warrant check revealed that Galloway had three warrants out of Orange County. After receiving confirmation of the warrants, Galloway was placed into custody.
The woman, who was identified as Biannca Blanda, 20, or Orange, was placed under arrest for hindering the apprehension of a felon.
Blanda and Galloway were both transported to the Orange County Jail without incident.
