MORGAN HILL - A Morgan Hill man wanted on multiple warrants was captured Thursday after jumping off his bicycle and hiding from police in the bushes of the front yard of a residence, police said.

Arturo Arias, 36, was arrested on a number of no-bail warrants for his arrest, resisting arrest and possession of burglary tools, Morgan Hill police reported.

At 12:11 p.m. Thursday, a Morgan Hill police officer turned on his lights and siren to pull over the rider of a bicycle for traffic violations on Wright Avenue west of Monterey Road, according to officers.

Arias was arrested and booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail, officers reported.
