Colorado suspect arrested in Shelbyville


A man wanted for attempted murder in Denver, Colorado was arrested Wednesday in Shelbyville.  

An investigator for the Denver Police Department notified Shelbyville authorities he’d tracked Fernando Noriega Garcia by his cellphone to a home on East Parkway.   

Shelbyville detectives and agents from the 17th Judicial District Drug Task Force watched the home and apprehended Garcia as he and another man pulled into the driveway.   

Garcia was charged locally with being a fugitive from justice and is being extradited to Colorado, a report by Detective Cody Swift said.   

Burglary suspect   

Police arrested Robert Warner after he allegedly broke into a vehicle Tuesday at Cheers Nutrition on the Shelbyville square.   

Warner was allegedly seen reaching into the vehicle taking a purse. A witness began chasing Warner, who allegedly knocked a mirror off another vehicle, dropping the purse, while on the run.   

Arriving officers were told to look for a bald man wearing camo pants. Warner fit the description “exactly” according to Sgt. Justin Smith, who arrested him on Mill Street just off the square moments later.   

Warner denied taking the purse and said he was running because he was being chased. He was charged with auto burglary with bond set at $7,500.
