Police recapture suspect who fled bail bond agents

Police recapture suspect who fled bail bond agents | Inland News | | Southern California News | News for Inland Southern California: "A suspect who escaped from bail bond agents and led police on a chase near Shivela Middle School in Murrieta Thursday morning prompted the school to go into a brief lockdown, school and police officials said.

Murrieta police Lt. Dennis Vrooman said police requested the school go into lockdown because they thought the man they were pursuing might be armed.

Shortly before 11 a.m., police responded to the 25000 block of Madison Avenue in Murrieta where bail bond agents were pursuing Christopher Perkins, 46, of San Diego, a police news release said.

The agents told police Perkins was not armed but had escaped from their custody.

Perkins, who was out on bail while facing numerous felony property crime charges, was last seen running east in a drainage canal under Interstate 15, the release said.

Officers checked the area around the 25000 block of Monroe Avenue and eventually spotted Perkins running west toward I-15."
