K9 Bonni Apprehends Fleeing Wanted Subject (Photo) - 01/05/19

At around midnight on January 5th, 2019 Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy Shawn Carter initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle for minor traffic violation.  As the vehicle slowed to a stop on Neotsu Drive in Lincoln City, a male passenger quickly exited and ran away on foot.  Senior Deputy Carter recognized the male as 26 year-old Felix Daniel Garcia-Mendoza of Albany.  Senior Deputy Carter had information that Garcia-Mendoza was wanted for outstanding felony arrest warrants at both the State and the Federal level.

Additional units from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Lincoln City Police Department arrived to assist Senior Deputy Carter as he deployed K9 Bonni to begin searching the area.  Senior Deputy Carter and K9 Bonni tracked Garcia-Mendoza to the crawl space of a vacant house nearby where responders issued him commands to surrender.  Garcia-Mendoza was non-compliant with the verbal commands and eventually K9 Bonni was deployed inside the residence.  K9 Bonni entered the crawl space and detained Garcia-Mendoza until Senior Deputy Carter could safely take him into custody.

Garcia-Mendoza was treated and released for minor bite injuries before being transported to the Lincoln County Jail.  His bail was set at $100,000.
