MARICOPA — On Tuesday, residents of the Rancho El Dorado community on Backus Drive awoke to find their neighborhood shut down by police due to a suspicious man seen moving door-to-door and attempting to gain entry to residences.
Jesse Coria was found attempting to gain entry to multiple properties in the neighborhood. One resident displayed a weapon to Coria in an attempt to get him to leave the property.
Police entered the neighborhood with both less-lethal and lethal weapons and made contact with Coria. Police reportedly gave him multiple instructions to walk backwards toward them, but he failed to obey. Coria walked up the driveway of a residence where police approached him. They instructed him to get down on the ground and put his hands behind his back, but he reportedly did not comply.
Police deployed a Taser and took Coria into custody. They requested the fire department to come to evaluate him, and he was transported to Maricopa Police Department for processing on one count of disorderly conduct.
