Woman Who Indicated She Was Armed Arrested in Davis

The search for and arrest of the woman occurred about 4:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.

This article was modified at 2:30 p.m., Dec. 31, 2012 to include details provided by a police information officer.

 A woman who alluded to having a gun was arrested in Davis Saturday, police said.

The search for and arrest of the woman occurred about 4:30 p.m. in the 600 block of Arthur Avenue, according to a Davis police records clerk.

Police did not release the woman's name but only said that the woman "alluded" to having a gun, the records clerk told Patch.

"The caller reported hearing someone say something that led them to believe there was possible criminal activity, even though none was observed," police spokesperson Glenn Glasgow wrote Patch in an email.

"As officers were arriving on scene, a subject ran into a house on Coolidge (Street)," Glasgow added.

"Since there was no criminal activity observed or reported, and mere flight upon seeing officers does not constitute a crime, the officers cleared the scene," Glasgow said.

The spokesperson told Patch that the public was never in any danger, so an alert was not necessary.

Glasgow also disputed the records clerk's narration of events regarding a weapon.

"There was no mention nor an observation of any weapon, therefore, the sergeant did not feel it necessary to put out an alert to residents in the area," Glasgow wrote to Patch.

It was unclear what the woman intended to do with the socalled gun.

So did they arrest her as stated in the lead, or did they clear the scene because there was 'no criminal activity observed'? Because there were five police cars parked in the area for at least an hour.

A very confusing article. Was she arrested or not? Reading the article for a second time, it appears she may have been arrested for the crime all Davis citizens fear; 'Alluding in a public place or highway'. Book em Dano!.
