02/03/24 - LCSO Case #24-0566 - LCSO K9 Bruno Assists Arrest

On Saturday evening, deputies responded to a report of a kidnapping in the 80100 block of Highway 99 near Saginaw.  A deputy located the involved vehicle and initiated a traffic stop.  He recognized the suspect, Jason Searles, in the back seat.  Deputies were aware of Searles from past calls for service, including an arrest that required the Sheriff’s Office Special Response Team.  

Searles refused to comply with deputies’ instructions to exit the vehicle, and began moving around in the back seat as though looking for something.  Concerned for the safety of the occupants of the vehicle and by Searles refusal to cooperate, Deputy Thomas deployed LCSO canine Bruno to the vehicle.  Bruno was able to apprehend Searles and assist with removing him from the vehicle.  Searles then complied with being detained before struggling again.  

Deputies were unable to confirm a kidnapping occurred.  However, Searles was arrested for Harassment, Failure to Report as a Sex Offender, Interfering with a Peace Officer, Resisting Arrest, and a Parole Violation. 

The Lane County Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit is funded by community donations.  All donations go directly to the K9 program to supply food, veterinary care, and equipment.  Learn more at https://www.lanecounty.org/government/county_departments/sheriff_s_office/about_us_-_now_and_then/police_services_division/k9_unit
