BUTTE COUNTY, Calif.-

Butte County Sheriff’s deputies have a man in custody for kidnapping, and other charges, thanks to some help from a citizen.

Around 1 p.m. Thursday afternoon, deputies say they tried to pull over a car for running a stop sign on Oro Bangor Highway. The car sped off, and a chase ensued.

The deputies say that after a short pursuit, the driver lost control of his car and got out to start running. However, he was spotted by a nearby citizen, who jumped into action, managing to detain the suspect. Deputies say they were then able to take the suspect into custody. He was identified as Oliver Anderson and had two felony warrants out for his arrest.

Anderson now faces new charges of evading and resisting officers.

He was also charged with kidnapping, after allegedly holding a female in the car against her will during the chase.

Cooler weather the next few days before we warm up again this weekend flirting with more record high temperatures. By next week we get even cooler but we also have the possibility of high fire danger next week.
