CORNING, Calif. – Corning Police Officers are searching for a Capay man that escaped during a standoff with police.

Officers said they were called to a home on Capay Road around 3 p.m. Tuesday to the report of a man violating a protective order and making criminal threats.

The CHP and Corning Police Department outside the front of a home on 800 block of Capay Road, east of Orland in Tehama County.

Once Officers arrived at 51-year-old John Poldervaarts residence, he sent aggressive dogs into the yard of his gated property, then retreated into the house, according to the police.

Action News Now spoke with a neighbor Martha Montenegro, who said she heard it all going on outside.

"I was just inside and I kept hearing ‘put your hands up,’ I thought it was coming from my son's tablet. I saw officers in front of the door, officers with their dogs coming from around here.”

Police established a perimeter and searched the property but Poldervaart was not located.

Poldervaart is facing charges that include criminal threats, stalking, violating a protective order, and resisting arrest. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Corning Police Department at 824-7000.

We began the new week with plenty of sunshine and heat around northern California, but more heat, more wind and more potential fire danger are ahead for our area.
