K-9 DUDER LOCATES BURGLARY SUSPECT

On Saturday, November 9th a home was broken into and through video surveillance, detectives were able to identify Dalton O’Berry as the person who entered the home. Detectives spotted O’Berry and his brother, Kasper O’Berry, walking down the road with long guns over their shoulders. When the men noticed detectives they ran into the woods. K-9 Deputy Refaei and his partner K-9 Duder responded and Kasper came out of the woods with his hands up. K-9 Duder was hot on Dalton’s track and took K-9 Deputy Refaei and detectives through the woods leading them to the rifle Dalton was carrying and then straight to Dalton himself. When Dalton realized there was a K-9 hot on his tracks he gave up. He was arrested for Burglary, Petit Theft, Carrying an Open Weapon and Obstruction.
