This morning approximately six Chico Police Officers surrounded a converted apartment behind a private business on the 3000 block of South Gate Lane. They believed 32-year-old Ryan Davis, who is wanted in connection with a marijuana theft on Forest Avenue a week ago, was inside. Officers ended the standoff when they found strong reason to believe Davis was not in the apartment.
Officers continue their search for Davis this afternoon who they consider to be armed and dangerous.
Officers also detained a woman believed to be living in the apartment, but she has since been released and has been cooperating with the investigation.
On October 30, Chico Police Officers responded to a residence on the 900 block of Forest Avenue near Hwy 32 in response to a robbery at a legal marijuana growing operation.
