Storm Lake Police Thursday afternoon located a wanted person at 210 Highway Street.

Police say 18-year-old Alexis Cervantes Alvarez of Schaller was wanted on a warrant charging him with violation of probation on a conviction for third-degree burglary. As an officer knocked on the door of the residence, another officer saw Cervantes Alvarez attempt to jump out of a rear window of the house. Officers entered the residence and took him into custody before he escaped. Police further allege Cervantes Alvarez had in possession a small amount of marijuana.

He was jailed on the outstanding warrant and further charged with possession of marijuana, a serious misdemeanor. Cervantes Alvarez was jailed on a 53-hundred dollar bond.
