K9 Nike captures wanted subject

Roseburg Police Dept.

On Thursday, December 26th, 2019 Roseburg Police K9 Nike and his handler were called to assist in tracking a wanted subject who fled from Douglas County Sheriff's Deputies.  The male, 29 year old Trevor Hollenbeck of Dillard, had several warrants for his arrest, and had been wanted since 2018.

During this incident K9 Nike tracked Hollenbeck for approximately 1 1/2 miles through blackberries, brush and in the South Umpqua river in the Dillard area.  After crawling about 80 yards through blackberries and bruch, K9 Nike found Hollenbeck concealed in the riverbank, covered in brush and a layer of dirt.  Hollenbeck refused to come out, so K9 Nike made a biting capture and held Hollenbeck until Hollenbeck was placed in handcuffs.  Hollenbeck was treated for minor injuries and lodged at Douglas County Corrections.
