Marion sheriff’s K-9 nabs suspect who fled from stolen vehicle after pursuit

A Marion County sheriff’s K-9 unit is being lauded for apprehending a man who fled from deputies in a stolen vehicle last month.

Dep. Mohammad Refaei and K-9 Duder

Deputies were attempting to stop a white 2004 Ford F-150 pickup on April 30 in the 5000 block of NW 100th Street when the driver, later identified as 43-year-old Daniel Eugene Bolden, of Ocala, decided not to comply. During the pursuit, detectives deployed stop sticks, which flattened three of the truck’s tires, a sheriff’s office report states.

Bolden then pulled the pickup off the road, slammed into a wooden fence and fled on foot. He was informed by Dep. Mohammad Refaei that he was going to release his K-9, Duder, but Bolden kept running.

K-9 Duder then caught Bolden very quickly and he was taken custody and charged with fleeing and eluding, resisting an officer without violence, criminal mischief, burglary, grand theft auto and two counts of petit theft. He is being held on $15,000 bond on six of the charges and no bond on one of the petit theft charges and is due in court on June 4 at 9 a.m.

Dep. Mohammad Refaei and his K-9 partner, Duder, were involved in a pursuit and takedown last month of 43-year-old Daniel Eugene Bolden, who deputies say fled from them in a stolen white 2004 Ford F-150 pickup.
