GP Police Collared Men on Felony Warrants while Investigating Theft Call

Grants Pass Police apprehended two men wanted on outstanding felony warrants early yesterday while investigating a theft complaint in the northwest part of the city.

According to the Police Department, officers responded to the incident in the 1200-block of NW Highland Avenue on Wednesday around 8:45 a.m..

Police said they contacted 54-year-old Paul Daniels and 42-year-old Paul Allyn during an investigation into unpaid labor. They said a 50-year-old woman worked for one of the men and was given a check that bounced due to insufficient funds.

During the investigation, it was discovered that Paul Daniels was wanted on an Oregon State warrant for Felony Parole Violation and Paul Allyn was wanted on a Grants Pass felony warrant for failing to appear in court for Identity Theft and 2nd-Degree Theft. Both Pauls were lodged at the Josephine County Jail.

On the original call regarding the bad check, the complainant agreed to enter into a civil agreement for payment of the money owed.
