Casper man waives preliminary hearing following December shoplifting and interference charges

Frank Caisas was arrested and charged with shoplifting, two interference charges and possession of a controlled substance in December after allegedly stealing from Wal Mart and then running from the police. Court records show that CPD officers found Caisas in the Nissan of Casper parking lot after he left Wal Mart. It was reported that Caisas had a utility knife and a folding knife in his possession. Reports show that the male refused to comply with officers when they spoke to him and continued to walk towards officers. One of the officers drew his sidearm, pointing it at the ground in a low ready position and ordered the male to his knees again. He then complied. Several seconds later, according to reports, the male jumped to his feet and fled Northwest across SE Wyoming BLVD. Officers pursued Caisas, who ran directly towards Taco Bell, according to reports. The male subject ran into the Taco Bell and ran towards the back, past the counter and out the back door. Reports showed that the male saw the units in front of him, and knew there was officers behind him, and he decided to give up. Thursday morning, Caisas waived his preliminary hearing and will take his case to District Court. #oilcity #news
