FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Fugitive, Allen Stone Arrested
Shortly after 11:00am today, fugitive Allen Harlan Stone, a 24 year old Bishop man was arrested without incident in Bishop. The Inyo County Sheriff’s Office has been actively looking for Stone since receiving notification that he had brandished a fire arm on December 27th, 2013. Stone has two felony warrants for his arrest.
On Monday January 27th, the Inyo County Sheriff’s Dispatch received a report that Stone was causing a disturbance outside a residence in Bishop. The reporting party said that Stone had a butcher knife and was threatening the occupant of the residence. It was later determined that this person was not injured; however this prompted an immediate response from law enforcement which resulted in a vehicle pursuit. The vehicle pursuit began near the Rocking W area, and eventually ended in a driveway behind a residence in the 800 block of Winnuba Lane in Bishop. Both suspects fled on foot. The driver, David Martinez, a 34 year old man from Bishop was taken into custody.
Based upon Stone’s potential for violence, the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office requested assistance from the US Marshalls Fugitive Task Force. The US Marshalls Fugitive Task Force was able to provide technical assistance as well as additional surveillance.
Today the team narrowed down Stone’s whereabouts to a residence on the 500 block of North Pa Ha Lane where he was successfully apprehended. Upon his arrest, a strong odor of marijuana was detected within the residence. At this time agents are applying for a search warrant through the Inyo County Superior Court to look for narcotics. Also arrested at the residence was Emmett James Davis III, a 21 year old Bishop man with misdemeanor warrants.
