BEND, OR -- A Bend Police K9 unit chased a wanted man through several southeast Bend yards before tracking him down in a wooden doghouse. An officer recognized 24-year-old Nathan Pogue walking along Reed Market Road near SE 5th Street, Monday afternoon. Pogue allegedly ran from police, trespassing in numerous yards and jumping over fences.
Officers set up a perimeter and deployed K9 officer Haras, who tracked Pogue to that wooden doghouse on SE Glencoe Place.
Pogue was wanted for allegedly violating a "No Contact Order" earlier this month. Investigators say he threatened and tried to bribe a victim from an August crime he's accused of committing at the Dunes Motel. Police say he tried to get the woman to give a false statement regarding that case, which is still pending trial.
Stemming from the January 2 violation, Pogue is charged with Tampering With a Witness, Bribing a Witness, Violation of Release Agreement, Menacing, Harassment and a Parole Violation. He's also charged with multiple counts of Second Degree Trespassing, from Monday's chase.
