A 46-year-old Marlette man was arrested Saturday morning after he terrorized his ex-girlfriend, according to a press release from the Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office.

At about 1:15 a.m. Saturday, Sanilac Central Dispatch received a call from a 34-year-old woman who lived in the 1500 block of Main Street in Minden City. The woman said her ex-boyfriend, Alan Volz, was in her yard. While deputies were en route, the woman told dispatch her ex was pounding on her door and throwing objects at her window.

Upon arrival, Sanilac County deputies discovered that the woman’s 2000 Chevrolet van had been set on fire. The deputies used a fire extinguisher to put out the fire, then observed a suspicious vehicle in the area matching the description of the suspect’s vehicle. Deputies attempted a traffic stop east of Minden City, but the suspect fled.

After a brief chase, the suspect pulled over near the intersection of Bay City-Forestville and Ruth roads in Delaware Township. It was discovered that the suspect was intoxicated and did not have permission to be driving the vehicle, the press release stated. An unloaded firearm, along with ammunition, was found in the vehicle.

The suspect was taken into custody and charged with multiple felony and misdemeanor offenses, including arson of personal property, motor vehicle theft, operating while intoxicated and several other charges. The suspect was on parole in Sanilac County and out on bond on charges in a nearby county at the time of his arrest.

The incident remains under investigation.
