GRAND RONDE -- A man accused of stealing a $125,000 Ferrari who has been on the run for several weeks was arrested in Grand Ronde on April 13.

Deputies from Polk County Sheriff's Office said tips from the public led them to Leon Mickey Davis, 29, a transient who was hiding in a building at 9295 Grand Ronde Road.

Authorities searched through outbuildings and travel trailers on the site. Polk Lt. Jeff Isham said Davis was found hiding under blankets and clothes inside the back bedroom of a manufactured home.

Davis was transported to Polk County Jail, with bond set at $187,000. He faces a laundry list of charges, including unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, possession of a stolen vehicle, eluding, reckless endangering, assault I, and unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

Two residents of the home were also taken into custody.

Heather Marla Young, 56, was charged with hindering prosecution and taken to Polk County Jail, where her bail was set at $15,000.

A 17-year-old female juvenile was cited on the same charge and later released to a relative.
