Warren County deputies investigating a report of a stolen vehicle arrested two people Tuesday.

Refugio Salcido Jr., 37, of Hugoton, Kan., and Jennifer Dawn Davis, 33, of Owensboro, were arrested Tuesday by the Warren County Sheriff's Office.

According to arrest citations, deputies responded Tuesday afternoon to the 800 block of Clarence Odell Road regarding a stolen vehicle.

Davis was found in the back seat of the vehicle and said she was "hanging out" when asked what she was doing inside. When asked why she was in the back of the vehicle, Davis said it was "like Driving Miss Daisy," according to her arrest citation.

Davis was detained and later told deputies that the driver was her boyfriend, Salcido.

Family members who reported the vehicle said Salcido was hiding in a tree on the Clarence Odell Road property.

Salcido's uncle reported that his vehicle was taken early Tuesday. Another relative said he wanted to press criminal charges.

Deputies found Salcido hiding in a tree, and he refused to comply with commands to come down.

A stun gun was then pointed at Salcido, at which point he came down, according to his arrest citation.

Salcido claimed to have permission to take the vehicle and gave an incorrect birth date and social security number to deputies.

Davis was arrested on charges of complicity to theft by unlawful taking and third-degree criminal trespassing.

Salcido was arrested on charges of theft by unlawful taking (valued at $500 or more but less than $10,000), theft of identity, failure to comply with sex offender registration, third-degree criminal trespassing, resisting arrest and giving an officer false identifying information. He was also served with three warrants from Kentucky and found to be wanted in Kansas.
