Sentinel staff report–
Citrus Heights police on Tuesday afternoon announced the arrest of a 43-year-old suspect who had been on the department’s most wanted list since August.

In a statement issued around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said special investigations unit detectives had arrested the suspect, Timothy Sherman King, at his residence in Yuba County. Detectives had previously served a narcotics search warrant in May at King’s residence in Citrus Heights, which later earned him a place on the police department’s most wanted list in August.

King also appeared on subsequent most wanted lists for allegedly being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Sacramento County online inmate records indicate King was booked into jail just before 4 p.m. Tuesday and is charged with a pair of felonies related to firearms and ammunition possession while being a felon. He is also charged with a drug-related misdemeanor. His total bail is currently set at $510,500.

Police said community members are thanked for their assistance in providing tips to help locate King.
