On September 30, 2021 an APD officer was patrolling the area of 2001 Menaul when they observed four subjects loitering on Circle K property. After speaking with management, all four subjects were asked to be Criminally Trespassed, and officers came into contact with Merissa Ybarra who was sitting on the property. It was confirmed Ybarra had four outstanding felony warrants, and was immediately placed into custody.

Ybarra was transported to the PTC without further incident. Ms. Ybarra has two felony arrests for Receiving or Transferring a Stolen Motor Vehicle, and Aggravated Fleeing from a Law Enforcement Officer.
