A 21-year-old Garfield Street woman who allegedly jumped over a fence on Ferguson Avenue near Grant Street to try to flee from police late Wednesday was arrested on criminal trespass and other charges. Kristina A. Lindenau was also charged with criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument and second-degree obstructing government administration. Police said they approached her at about 11 p.m. Wednesday when she suddenly ran away and hopped the fence.
They chased after her and took her into custody after discovering she was carrying a hypodermic needle. She remained in custody at the Erie County Holding Center Thursday night.
