News in Brief: Davis Police arrest vehicle burglar

Last Tuesday, the Davis Police arrested 27-year-old Marcus Ford from Yuba City.
According to a Davis Police press release, at around 5:20 a.m., a patrol officer in South Davis heard a car alarm near Davis Swim and Fitness at 303 Ensenada Way. The officer pulled into the parking lot and saw Ford fleeing from the scene.
The officer stopped Ford during his initial attempt to flee. Ford then tried to flee again by starting his car, but the officer obstructed his attempts by turning Ford’s car off. A struggle initiated with Ford attempting to drive away with the officer still in the car.

An arriving Davis Police sergeant noticed the scene and discharged his firearm at Ford’s car. Although the car stopped, Ford continued to resist arrest. The police used an electronic control device to subdue him.

No one was seriously injured. Ford was at the Monroe Detention Center on charges from the incident as well as from an outstanding felony warrant arrest out of Sutter County.
