Police K9 Captures Wanted Subject

Roseburg Police Dept. 

On May 9th, 2019 at approximately 2300 hours, Roseburg Police K9 Nike and his handler were called to assist with trying to locate a wanted fugitive in the 5000 block of Eagle Valley Road.  The suspect, 22 year old Trevor Slater of Roseburg, fled on foot from a traffic stop when DCSO Deputies pulled him over.

A citizen in the 5100 block of Eagle Valley reported Slater was at their door, but was scared off by their dogs.  K9 Nike tracked Slater through blackberries, across a creek, and up a hillside but he continued to elude capture.  A neighbor in the 5200 block of Eagle Valley called and said their motion light had activated.  K9 Nike continued searching and eventually tracked to a large barn in the area.  As they checked the second floor of the barn, K9 Nike and his handler found Slater hiding under a bale of hay.  Slater gave up when confronted with Nike barking at him.  Slater was ultimately arrested by DCSO and charged with a Parole Violation, Unlawful Possession of Heroin, and Criminal Trespass.
