COLUMBIA—A 29-year-old man was arrested on four outstanding warrants Tuesday night.

The Boone County Sheriff's Department arrested Marquis O. King of Columbia at about 8:30 p.m. on the 4300 block of Santa Barbara Drive.

Because there have been problems in the Santa Barbara and Santa Anna areas, the sheriff’s department has tried to create a presence by employing a foot patrol, detective Tom O'Sullivan said. On Tuesday, a sheriff's deputy on patrol recognized King as he entered a residence and apprehended him.

“All of our guys have pictures of him,” O’Sullivan said.

O’Sullivan said the department had been looking for King for more than a month.

King was arrested on four outstanding warrants: 

  • A Boone County warrant for third-degree assault and unlawful use of a weapon.
  • A Boone County warrant for second-degree property damage.
  • A Boone County warrant for felony for non-support.
  • A Columbia municipal warrant for lack of an operator’s license.

Bonds for the arrest total $32,200. King was being held in the Boone County Jail as of Wednesday at 10 a.m.
