BEND, OR -- A man with several outstanding warrants was arrested Wednesday after Bend Police say he ran from a traffic stop. Officers tried to pull over a VW Passat at about 5:20 p.m., near NW Jefferson Pl and Delaware Ave, in an effort to arrest 29-year-old Stephen Owen Davies. He was a passenger in the car, but police say he ran off.
Officers set up a perimeter and searched the area, employing multiple K9 units and a drone. At approximately 7:30 p.m., officers found Davies hiding in a shed on a property in the 400 block of NW Broadway Street. He was taken into custody without incident or injury.
Davies had two warrants for his arrest: a parole violation from the Oregon state parole board related to a previous second-degree assault conviction, as well as a warrant out of Washington County for failure to appear on a larceny charge.
