Wanted by the U.S. Marshal

Police say they apprehended a man Sunday afternoon who they say is wanted by the U.S. Marshal's Service for allegedly counterfeiting cash or checks.

Police say they spotted Martin Philip Rose, 43, in the parking lot of Staples, 3636 Harrison Ave., as they interviewed a woman sitting inside a vehicle.

During the interview, police said, Rose came out of the store with a cart full of merchandise. An employee also came out of the store and allegedly claimed Rose had just written a forged check.

Police arrested Rose, who they said initially would not give officers his name. Police took the 43-year-old’s fingerprints, and later discovered the man’s identity and the federal warrant.

Police said they were unable to find an address listed for Rose.

Rose is currently being held in the Butte county jail, where he faces local misdemeanors for using a fake check and for refusing to divulge his identity. He’s also been cited with felony possession of stolen property.

Partner assault

Police say they responded Monday night to a casino on the 3100 block of Busch Avenue after a female entered the casino and phoned police.

According to police, the woman claimed her husband had abused her for several days and had become angry outside the casino inside the couple’s vehicle. The woman told police she ran into the casino, and her husband drove away in the vehicle.

Police said when they arrived they observed that the woman had bruising on her face.
