Almost two weeks ago, an arrest warrant was issued for in the county.
Included in Jurado's recent crimes was the burglary of an 82-year-old woman's house. He later used her debit card at an ATM machine.
But Jurado's time on the run came to a close Thursday morning when he was arrested in Watsonville.
Around 10:30 a.m., an off-duty officer spotted Jurado driving on Green Valley Road near Dick Phelps Road. The officer followed Jurado, called dispatchers and directed an on-duty officer to his location, Sgt. Eric Taylor told Watsonville Patch.
"He had a small amount of marijuana on him, but he didn't resist arrest and there was no pursuit," Taylor said. "It was a pretty straightforward traffic stop and arrest."
Jurado's accomplice in identity theft, Hernan Coto, has not yet been arrested.
