Captured! LCSO K9 helps nab burglary suspects in Albany
By The News Guard,
Wednesday, Sept. 20, the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office’s K9 team Deputy Z. Akin and K9 Ghost were participating in regional K9 training in the Albany area when Albany Police (APD) were investigating an active commercial burglary of a gated storage unit complex located at 2887 Ferry St SW in Albany.
In the course of that investigation, three subjects fled the location on foot. APD captured one subject quickly but requested assistance from the K9 teams in training to help locate the outstanding subjects.
Deputy Akin and K9 Ghost were deployed. Akin and Ghost picked up a scent north of the location where they had been searching and tracked the two subjects to another commercial building nearby and ultimately located the subjects hiding under a loading dock.
The subjects were challenged by Deputy Akin and K9 Ghost and quickly surrendered to APD officers on scene without resistance.
