Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Names its Newest K9 - K9 Copper the Bloodhound (Photo) - 11/12/19

Updated on November 12, 2019 at 3:39 pm by Sgt. William Bailey

After thousands of name suggestions and over 2600 votes on the twenty top names, Copper has been selected has our new K9’s official name.  Copper came out at the top with 870 voters selecting it as their favorite name.  Many that suggested the name Copper referenced the movie Fox and the Hound as inspiring their name selection.  Other community members recommended this name based on the color of his fur.  Additionally, the name could also refer the slang term “Cop” being short for Copper, which is said to originate from the copper buttons that officers once wore on their uniforms.

We would like to thank everyone that helped us with the naming process.  It is very apparent to us that our community loves our newest K9 and everyone is looking forward to his many years of service to the citizens and visitors of Deschutes County.

Today, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is excited to introduce our newest K9.  The fifteen-week-old Bloodhound was donated to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office by Tamaron Ranch Bloodhounds in September.  Since then, a process occurred to identify and select a handler for him.  Deputy Donny Patterson, a twelve-year veteran of the Sheriff’s Office, was recently selected to be that partner.  They officially became partners on Halloween and both will head to Riverside, California next week to begin the training and certification process.

DCSO Deputy Uses PIT Maneuver to Safely Stop Wanted Woman's Vehicle (Photo) - 11/04/19

Released by: Sgt. William Bailey - Public Information Officer

Release Date: November 4, 2019

Arrested:  Suzette Delancey  Age: 55    Bend, Oregon

Charges: Parole Violation Warrant, Attempt to Elude a Police Officer and Reckless Driving

Narrative:

On November 4, 2019, at approximately 4:55pm, a deputy with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office was driving westbound on Pinebrook Blvd. towards the Bend Parkway.  The deputy observed a white 2002 Pontiac passenger car attempting to cross Pinebrook from the Alberstons parking lot towards Wal-Mart.  The deputy recognized the driver and believed she had a suspended license and warrant for her arrest.  The deputy pulled into Albertsons, turned around and went behind the vehicle.  As the Pontiac attempted to cross Pinebrook Blvd., the deputy initiated a traffic stop.

The driver continued through the Wal-Mart parking lot at speeds between 10-15 MPH.  The driver went past numerous spots to pull over and stop.  Eventually, as the deputy and driver were driving northbound on the frontage road, the Deputy activated his siren and the vehicle continued.  The driver turned left (west) onto Badger Road and the deputy attempted a PIT (Pursuit Immobilization Technique) maneuver.  A PIT maneuver is a pursuit tactic by which a pursuing deputy can force a fleeing car to abruptly turn sideways, causing the driver to lose control and stop.  This initial PIT attempt was unsuccessful. 

The driver then turned right to go northbound on the parkway and started to rapidly accelerate.  The deputy again attempted a PIT from the passenger side of the vehicle.  This PIT attempt was successful, causing the Pontiac to spin almost 180 degrees.  The vehicle struck a curb and came to rest in a dirt field on the east side of the parkway.  The driver was quickly apprehended and identity confirmed to be Suzette Delancey, the wanted person the deputy recognized. 

Delancey was transported to the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Adult Jail and lodged on the listed charges.  The vehicle was towed from the scene.  The Pontiac had a scuff on the right rear quarter panel from the contact.  The Deputy’s vehicle had no apparent damage.

NARRATIVE:

An investigation into the crash at this time has determined that the pickup driver, Corena Freel, was traveling behind another SUV type vehicle traveling westbound on Highway 20.  The SUV began to slow to conduct a right hand turn into a driveway.  Freel was not able to slow down behind the SUV and was forced to attempt to drive around the SUV while crossing the center line of the highway.  This caused the pickup to lose control, and drive off the north side of the roadway.  The vehicle rolled multiple times before coming to rest on its side. 

 

This accident is still under investigation to determine if speed, distracted driving, or following too close as causes for the crash.  Drugs / Alcohol are not believed to be involved factors at this time.

On October 14, 2019 at approximatley 5:16pm, a Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to a report of two horses at large in the area of Green Forest Rd and Holtzclaw Rd. When the deputy arrived in the area, he was advised by citizens the owner, Frank Gorden, caught the horses and walked them home.

After about 20 minutes, it was obvious to the deputy and the horse owner that more help was needed to get the horse out of the hole and back onto its feet . The horse was showing signs of exhaustion after failing to remove itself from the hole, possibly due to its’ age.

A veterinarian and horse rescue organizations were contacted and asked to assist. Dr. Kelley A. Jones, DVM, and members from Mustangs To The Rescue and Mustangs MEND responded to the scene.  Dr. Jones and the rescue personnel utilized Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue (TLAER) techniques to extricate the horse from the hole. Additional deputies also arrived to assist. 

The horse, Bozeman, age 20, was able to stand with a little assistance a short time after. Bozeman was down for a total of about three hours. He appeared to be uninjured and is expected to fully recover.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Released by: Sergeant Kent Vander Kamp

Bend, OR – Bend Man Arrested After Pistol-Whipping Brother During Dispute

On October 19, 2019, at 7:14PM, Deschutes County 911 received a call about a dispute on the 19000 block of Buck Canyon Rd. The caller told 911 operators that a dispute between brothers turned violent and one man was injured after being “pistol-whipped.”

Deputies arrived and found 27 year old, Joshua Adam Fadness, standing in front of the house with non-life threatening injuries. Joshua was cooperative and taken into custody without incident.

The initial investigation found that Joshua and his brother, Jacob Fadness, began arguing in front of the main house. Both men live together in separate dwellings on the property.

The argument became physical and both men fell to the ground where they continued to wrestle. During the struggle, Joshua Fadness pulled a large caliber pistol from his waistband and began striking Jacob in the face and head with the pistol. Jacob was unarmed and sustained substantial non-life threatening injuries.

Other family members and dinner guests attempted to stop the fight before noticing Joshua was armed with a pistol. The family members also struggled with Joshua while attempting to disarm him and secure the firearm. The family members also received minor non-life threatening injuries during the struggle.  The pistol never discharged during the incident.

Both men received treatment for their respective injuries at St. Charles Health System – Bend.

Alcohol and poor judgment appear to be a factors in this incident.
