BEND, OR -- A wanted man was caught by a Bend K9 officer, Sunday afternoon, after a citizen reported a suspected drug deal outside of Macy’s. The witness provided detailed descriptions of the suspects.
Police immediately detained 24-year-old Dakota Deters in the parking lot, but the second man had gone into the store. He started to come out but turned around when he saw the officers. Police caught up with 23-year-old Stephen Davies (pictured) leaving through the back; but he ran again, reaching into his waistband. The K9 was deployed and Davies stopped running and put his hands up. The dog was called off and the suspect took off again before he was finally apprehended by the K9.
Davies was treated at the hospital for a dog bite to the leg before going to jail. He's accused of having an outstanding warrant for a parole violation, interfering with police and resisting arrest. Deters was cited for meth possession and released.
