Wilson, 30, was found hiding in a garage after a 40-minute search of a Taft Heights neighborhood that started with a report of a burglary about 7:55 a.m.
Dispatchers received a report from a woman who saw two men rummaging through her garage in the 500 block of D Street, Kern County Sheriff's Sgt. Kevin George said.
The suspects fled as law enforcement officers arrived, but one was spotted running south on Sixth Avenue.
Police and deputies established a perimeter and began searching.
About 8:30, the Wilson was located in a detached garage on the 50 block of D Street.
He was booked on charges of second-degree burglary.
The second suspect was not located, George said.
