LA PINE, OR -- Two men in as many days were caught by Deschutes County K-9 units while trying to hide from deputies, this week. On Tuesday, 34-year-old Ross Low was arrested in Tumalo for an out of state warrant and other charges. Deputies were first dispatched to the area of Fourth and Wharton on a report of an intoxicated motorcyclist. He allegedly tried to elude capture by hiding in tall grass along the riverbank but was found by K-9 “Vinnie” (pictured, left). Authorities say he refused to comply with commands and was injured during the arrest. He was treated at the hospital before being taken to jail.
Wednesday, K-9 “Delta” (right) helped apprehend 50-year-old Tony Maxwell in La Pine on a probation violation and other charges. DCSO says he swam across the river and was found hiding in the bushes.
