FORTUNA- A Fortuna man was arrested on Wednesday after leading police officers on a foot chase through Rohner Park.

Lance Ostlund allegedly broke into two vehicles in the Strongs Creek Plaza parking lot Tuesday night and stole credit cards. He then used those cards at a nearby Safeway. Officers identified Ostlund in the store’s security footage. On Wednesday, Ostlund was located during a traffic stop on Main Street. He fled the scene and was eventually apprehended in the creek bed at Rohner Park.

Ostlund had outstanding warrants and was charged with possession of stolen property, burglary and violation of probation.
