BEND, OR -- A Bend traffic stop led to a stand-off and eventual arrest of a wanted couple, Friday. Bend Police Sgt. Rob Emerson says officers pulled over a car linked to 36-year-old Dana Johnson and his girlfriend, 33-year-old Angela Capps-Watson. While the two were not in the vehicle, police learned information that led them to a garage in Romaine Village, where they were reportedly living. 

 

When investigators arrived at the home on Volare Lane, the 36-year-old Johnson threatened to shoot police. "He also claimed that he had some explosives in the garage, and through the course of the investigation, we'd learned that that may actually be accurate; based on the subject's history, we believed those threats to be true," Sgt. Emerson tells KBND News, "He actually barricaded himself in the garage, put a bunch of objects in front of the only door, and through the course of the investigation, we learned that he did actually have a replica firearm. It was a pellet gun, but it looked extremely real." 

 

A negotiator was called in, and the two eventually surrendered. Police found flammable materials inside the garage, but Emerson says none was rigged to explode, but were dangerous.


Capps-Watson and Johnson are being held on their felony warrants, and Johnson faces additional charges of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, Disorderly Conduct, and Menacing.
