Chico Police spotted and pursued a suspect with two felony warrants for arrest Wednesday night, with the use of a K-9 unit.

Joshua Boles was wanted for felony level crimes of resisting arrest and possessing a firearm as a felon. In addition, Chico Police stated in a press release that they have an “extensive history” with Boles, including “assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest, narcotics violations and domestic violence.”

According to the press release, officers spotted Boles on foot around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and when they tried to contact him he fled immediately. Officers pursued on foot and by vehicle, until losing sight of him when he entered the backyard of a residence at 1134 West 5th Street.

A perimeter was set up around the location and police called for backup including K-9 officers Martin and Aron, a 4-and-a-half-year-old Belgian Malinois police dog.

Boles had attempted to conceal himself behind some wooden crates, and was refusing officers’ verbal commands until officers furthered warned him they would release Aron to apprehend him.

At this time, Officer Martin had Aron start barking, prompting Boles to immediately surrender.

Boles was taken into custody without further incident and booked for his outstanding warrants, as well as an additional charge of resisting arrest.
