Trespasser at SW Bend home jumps fence and runs through neighborhood; K-9 Harry helps track him down
BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) – A Bend man caught trespassing at a southwest Bend home late Wednesday night jumped a fence and ran through the neighborhood when police arrived, but was tracked down with the help of a K-9 team and arrested, police said.
Officers responded shortly before 11 p.m. to the report of trespassing at a home in the 60000 block of McMullin Drive, Police Communications Manager Sheila Miller said.
The 31-year-old man had been trespassed from the property, was on probation for a felony strangulation charge and had an outstanding Deschutes County misdemeanor warrant, Miller said.
As police arrived, the man ran from the home and jumped a fence onto a neighboring property, she said.
Officers and K-9 Harry and his partner tracked the man through the neighborhood, finding pieces of his property in two yards, Miller said.
The man was found in the backyard of a home in the 60000 block of Granite Drive and was taken into custody without further incident.
He was booked into the Deschutes County Jail on a charge of second-degree criminal trespass, along with felony probation violation and the outstanding warrant.
