Suspect Treed After K-9 Unit Called

Associated Press - August 16, 2013 3:11 pm

The agencies have arrested 81 people, with additional arrests expected. 54 search warrants were served throughout Junction City, Grandview Plaza, Manhattan, and Ogden. During the searches a variety of narcotics and 17 firearms were seized.

A man suspected of trying to break in to a Topeka motel was caught hiding in a tree after police dogs were called in to help in the search.

Police were called to the motel early Friday on a report of an attempted break in. The suspect ran from the area as police arrived and headed into a heavily wooded area.

Police officers established a perimeter around the area and called for assistance from its K-9 unit and the Kansas Highway Patrol. After a brief search, K-9 officers located the suspect hiding in a tree.

Police spokeswoman Kristen Veverka says it took the suspect about an hour to come down from the tree.

He was taken into custody, and formal charges are pending.
