Felony Warrant Arrest (Photo) - 07/09/18

On 07/04/18, Newport Police Department Officers received information that Troy Kenneth DAHL was in the Newport area and had an active Felony Parole Board Warrant for his arrest.  Officers also learned that DAHL was on Post-Prison Supervision for being a Felon in Possession of a Weapon.

On 07/05/18, NPD Officers located DAHL at his parent’s motorhome located at 6225 N Coast Hwy.  Officers made verbal contact with DAHL who had barricaded himself inside the motorhome.  After several failed attempts to negotiate with DAHL, Officers made entry into the motorhome.  DAHL refused to comply with Officers by not showing his hands and a Taser was deployed to apprehend him.  Officers were able to gain control of DAHL and took him into custody without further incident.
