Synopsis: On 8/4/12 at approx. 2330 hrs. Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies received information that one of Mendocino's Most Wanted suspects was seen at a motel room at the Vagabond Inn(601 Talmage Rd. Ukiah). Angelo Want was wanted for the attempted Murder incident which occurred at a Yokayo Rancheria Road residence on July 6 2012. He was also wanted on other felony warrants for his arrest.

Mendocino County Sheriff's Deputies with the aid of Ukiah Police Officer and California Highway Patrol Officers went to the motel in attempt to locate and arrest Want. While deputies were walking in the parking lot they observed Want running toward a vehicle. Want observed the approaching deputies and highway patrol officers and started running. Pursuing deputies and highway patrol officers chased Want and caught him in the parking lot of the motel where he quickly surrendered.

At a motel room at the location, Suspect Antoinette Ellis was contacted and it was determined that she was harboring Suspect Want. Ellis was taken into custody for harboring a wanted felony suspect (32 PC). Both Ellis and Want were incarcerated at the Mendocino County jail for the listed charges with bail being denied for Want due to a violation of his probation.

Prior to Want being incarcerated at the jail, a small baggie of cocaine was located in his pants pockets. Want was also charged with possession of a controlled substance (11350 H&S).
