News Release
Police K9 Captures Wanted Subject - 05/10/19

On May 9th, 2019 at approximately 2300 hours, Roseburg Police K9 Nike and his handler were called to assist with trying to locate a wanted fugitive in the 5000 block of Eagle Valley Road.  The suspect, 22 year old Trevor Slater of Roseburg, fled on foot from a traffic stop when DCSO Deputies pulled him over.

A citizen in the 5100 block of Eagle Valley reported Slater was at their door, but was scared off by their dogs.  K9 Nike tracked Slater through blackberries, across a creek, and up a hillside but he continued to elude capture.  A neighbor in the 5200 block of Eagle Valley called and said their motion light had activated.  K9 Nike continued searching and eventually tracked to a large barn in the area.  As they checked the second floor of the barn, K9 Nike and his handler found Slater hiding under a bale of hay.  Slater gave up when confronted with Nike barking at him.  Slater was ultimately arrested by DCSO and charged with a Parole Violation, Unlawful Possession of Heroin, and Criminal Trespass.
