MANTECA, Calif. (KTXL) — A suspected burglar drowned trying to get away from detectives in Manteca.

The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office reported the drowning Wednesday, saying Lathrop investigators tracked down the potential suspect to an area they knew he frequented near Woodward Avenue and Dredger Cut.

That’s where the sheriff’s office says he ran into the water and refused to come out.

Lathrop-Manteca Fire District rescue and dive teams searched for the suspect before a sheriff’s boat found him dead in the water.

The San Joaquin County Coroner’s Office identified the man Thursday as 29-year-old Joseph Chisholm from Manteca.
