K9 Axel Helps Catch Runaway Suspect

On January 29th, Deputy Bell with the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, deployed his K9 Axel on a track when two suspects fled on foot after wrecking their vehicle during a pursuit. One suspect was taken into custody a short distance away however the remaining suspect was still at large. Other law enforcement officers played one of the most crucial roles during the deployment by establishing a perimeter.

While tracking the suspect, K9 Axel gave a proximity alert by barking. Deputy Bell announced his presence and the presence of the police dog and the suspect ultimately surrendered without further incident.

Way to go, Deputy Bell and K9 Axel!
