K9 Nike Captures Wanted Suspect

Roseburg Police Dept. - 09/10/18 

On September 8th, 2018 a Douglas County Sheriff's Deputy attempted to contact Wayne Stowell near Interstate 5 at milepost #128.  When Stowell saw the Deputy, Stowell ran off into the bushes.  Officers knew Stowell had a felony warrant for his arrest, and he also has a history of resisting arrest.  K9 Nike was called to the area to conduct a search, and while searching, a perimeter unit saw Stowell running on the railroad tracks in the area.  K9 Nike tracked to the railroad tracks, went under a bridge and over a creek and then found Stowell hiding in some tall grass nearby.  K9 Nike barked at Stowell, and Stowell surrendered and was arrested without further incident.
