Suspect attempted to elude police on foot


A Marshalltown man remains in Marshall County Jail after being arrested by Marshalltown Police late last week.

Eric James Dozier, 28, was charged with Interference with Official Acts;

Possession of Drug Paraphernalia; Attempted Burglary Third Degree; Attempted Burglary Third Degree Non-Vehicle; and Possession of a Controlled Substance -Third Offense.

The MPD was dispatched to the Church of Christ in the 2200 block of South Center Street after a resident had called and said an attempted burglary might be in progress. The suspect fled on foot when he saw police. An officer later apprehended the suspect and found the controlled substance and drug paraphernalia.

Dozier is being held on $5,000 bond.
