Davies, who was a passenger in the Volkswagen Passat, ran from the vehicle.

Officers used K9s and a drone to search the area, but could not initially find Davies.

Davies was found at about 7:30 p.m., hiding in a shed on a property in the 400 block of NW Broadway Street and arrested, police said.

Davies had warrants for a parole violation from the Oregon state parole board related to a previous second-degree assault conviction and a warrant out of Washington County for failure to appear on a larceny charge, police said.

He was booked into the Deschutes County Jail.
