Deputies Deploy K-9 to Capture Wanted Suspect in Busy Area of Rochester

Parkin says a deputy stopped the vehicle near the intersection of West Circle Dr. and Valleyhigh Rd. Northwest for a moving violation. 


After initial contact with the deputy, the driver, identified as 22-year-old Christian Davis, fled from the scene on foot, authorities say.

Parkin said the Rochester man, who had several active arrest warrants from other counties, initially gave a false name to the deputy. 

Other deputies and a K-9 responded to the area to assist with the search for Davis. The deputies found and captured Davis shortly after the back-up arrived at the scene without further incident, Parkin said.  

Olmsted County Adult Detention Center records indicate Davis was booked into the jail around 3:50 p.m. 

The sheriff’s office’s report indicates Davis could face charges connected to his alleged fleeing of the traffic stop, along with the charges he faces in connection with the arrest warrants.
