CHICO, Calif. - A wanted felon is behind bars thanks to a K-9 officer at the Chico Police Department.

34-year-old Nicholas Hoxie of Chico was refusing to leave a property on W. 21st street Tuesday, at 3:40 p.m. said police.

When an officer arrived, the resident of the property said Hoxie attempted to hide in the backyard of the house. The resident told police that Hoxie then jumped over the fence, into a neighbor's yard, where officers were approaching.

Officers began to get reports from people in the area that Hoxie was jumping over a fence in the 100 block of W. 21st St. and possibly running south.

That's when K-9 Officer Cox and his partner Pax arrived in the area to assist officers with a search. Hoxie eventually ran into the K-9 officer and his dog. 

That's when Hoxie laid on the ground for arrest.  No contact was made between K9 Pax and Hoxie.

Hoxie was found to have a felony warrant for possession of a dagger as well as a warrant out of Glenn County for narcotics possession.

Hoxie was placed under arrest and transported to the Butte County Jail.

Wednesday was a scorching day for parts of the valley as northerly airflow really warmed our temperatures. The breezes will continue Thursday, but their direction will shift and it will be slightly cooler.
