(ALBION) - A man who was wanted on an armed robbery warrant out of Sarasota, Florida was arrested in Albion on Tuesday. The Noble County Sheriffs Department says Jorge A. Castillo was apprehended by sheriff's deputies and Albion Police after a brief struggle at a convenience store. He was recognized by a plain clothes deputy who recognized Castillo from a wanted poster that had been displayed at the sheriff's department and called additional officers for assistance. Authorities have been looking for Castillo ever since March 25th when the Sheriffs Department says he allegedly ran from a Ligonier Police Officer following a traffic stop. He inadvertently dropped his wallet which contained some identification that police determined was counterfeit. The investigation later revealed that Castillo had an active warrant for his arrest out of Florida. Besides the Florida warrant, Castillo was booked on charges of resisting law enforcement and theft.
