Several People Arrested Tuesday in Bellefontaine


While on patrol Tuesday afternoon, officers from the Bellefontaine Police Department noticed William Dolan III walking on a porch on Plumvalley Street.

Officers knew that Dolan had a warrant for his arrest.

They also saw Jayden Ford at the residence and knew she also had a warrant for her arrest.

The officers stopped and attempted to speak with Ford, however, she denied her identity and walked around the house.

She was placed in handcuffs and sat in the back of a cruiser.

More officers, K9 Boodik, and deputies from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office arrived on the scene.

Ford began to complain to officers that she felt as if she was going to pass out.

She was transported to Mary Rutan Hospital for treatment.

Back at the scene, authorities attempted to get someone to come to the door of the home, but no one would answer.

After some time, two people exited the rear of the home.

They informed officials that Dolan and another man, later identified as Norro Perdue were still inside.

After several requests to open the door, Perdue came out.

He was placed under arrest for an outstanding warrant and informed authorities that Dolan was in the basement.

K9 Boodik was deployed inside the home and located Dolan hiding in the basement.

He surrendered to avoid being bit by the K9.

It was later discovered by officers, after watching the dash video, that Ford had slipped off her handcuffs while inside the patrol car and attempted to open the door through a cracked window.

Ford was arrested on her felony warrant and charged with Attempted Escape.

Dolan was arrested for his felony warrant.

Perdue was arrested for two charges of failure to appear.
