Racine K9 Helps Stop Suspect After Deputys Believe He Was Reaching Into A Holster

RACINE COUNTY - While on a routine patrol yesterday afternoon, A Racine County Sheriff's Deputy noticed a truck parked in an unusual spot at the Dover Food Mart on Raynor Ave. in the Town of Dover.

The Deputy approached the vehicle and made contact with the two people inside. They told the Deputy they had pulled into the lot because the passenger felt he was going to get sick.

After a short time, the Deputy released the two people and left the scene. As he drove northbound, he saw a person hiding along the North Fence Line. He stopped the squad and directed the subject to come to him.The subject was curled up on his side with his hands hidden from view.

The Deputy ordered him to show his hands, which the subject refused.

A K9 Deputy then arrived on scene with his K9 partner Nox. They joined the first Deputy in telling the subject to show them his hands. Suddenly the subject rolled over and reached for a large black nylon case similar to what Law enforcement uses for duty belt equipment. Both Deputies believed it was a holster. At this time the K9 Deputy released K9 Nox. Nox then rushed forward apprehending the subject by biting his right arm.

The subject was then taken into custody. The subject was then treated by Kansasville Rescue. He was then taken to RCJ on Resisting/ Obstructing charges.
