Nampa man acused of harboring a fugitive
Nampa Police have arrested Clayton Dean Dewey, 33, of Caldwell, on a $50,000 warrant for harboring a fugitive. He is charged with caring for Kyle Batt, a person who officers say shot two deputies.
On October 23 of last year, two Canyon County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to Batt’s
Home on Sheryl Lane in Caldwell. The deputies were investigating an aggravated
assault that took place earlier that day in which Batt was the suspect. When the deputies
arrived, Batt, who was in the yard of the home, reportedly opened fire and shot the two deputies. Before Batt fled the scene, one of the deputies returned fire and shot Batt in the
Batt went to Dewey’s house after the shooting the deputies, where police say Dewey provided medical care to Batt’s injured leg and allowed him to stay in his heated detached garage while
police searched for Batt.
One of the deputies shot in the incident has since returned to duty, police say. The other deputy is still recovering from his injuries.
Dewey is scheduled to make his initial appearance before a judge at the Canyon County Courthouse. If found guilty, he faces up to five years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
