ORANGE . (AP) — A 31-year-old man shot and killed by police in Anaheim had been arrested a day earlier after running from authorities and crashing his truck into a construction site, police said Sunday.

Officers arrested Paul Anderson after observing him jump over a wall, get into a truck and drive off during a separate incident Friday. He had refused to stop until he crashed, Anaheim police said in a statement.

After learning that California Highway Patrol officers had observed a large stash of marijuana while trying to serve a traffic warrant on a 24-year-old woman at the same home that Anderson had been seen running from, Anaheim police obtained a warrant and seized more than 15 pounds of marijuana, police said.

Anderson then faced additional charges. He was released early Saturday after posting $25,000 bail.

Hours later, Anaheim police went to serve the traffic warrant on Mayra Frausto and saw her get into a car with Anderson and a driver. Officers pulled the vehicle over in the nearby city of Orange, and Anderson got out holding a gun, police said.

Police shot and killed Anderson. Frausto was arrested, police said. It wasn’t immediately clear what happened to the driver.
