She allegedly told deputies that Denby was armed with a machete and would likely fight back if police contacted him.

DCSO said Denby was found asleep in a vehicle in the nearly Chevron parking lot. Deputies, including an armored vehicle, pinned Denby鈥檚 vehicle in to make sure it couldn鈥檛 drive away. Businesses in the area were also told to pause operations during the event, the sheriff鈥檚 office said.

Denby was taken into custody without incident, DCSO said.

DCSO said Denby had three active nationwide felony warrants including:

  • Kidnapping
  • Coercion
  • Extortion
  • Assault 4th Degree
  • Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle
  • Menacing
  • Unlawful Use of an Electrical Stun Gun, Tear Gas, or Mace

Myers had a warrant for failure to appear for Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle.

Black Butte Police assisted in the arrest.
