Address8080 Watts Rd. (Princeton Club)
ArrestedLevontre D. Scott, age 17, Middleton
Suspect was arrested for Felony Bail Jumping, Resisting/Obstructing and Disorderly Conduct.
DetailsIt was a small culvert, and officers working the manhunt's perimeter thought it likely too small for a human to enter, but Krahnie's nose knew better. Krahnie is a police dog, named for a beloved MPD sergeant who lost her life to cancer last year. Sgt. Karen Krahn would have been proud of her namesake yesterday morning.
It all began at Princeton Club, Madison West when a suspected thief returned to the scene of his alleged crimes. Earlier this year the Middleton teen was arrested while on a shopping spree financed by credit cards stolen from wallets of Princeton Club members. As a condition of bail Levontre D. Scott, age 17, is not to be on the health club's property. So, when he showed up, a manager called police.
Officers were arriving just as a car, in which the suspect was a passenger, was leaving the Watts Rd. lot. The driver was pulled over a couple of blocks away, and Scott bailed out, running into woods near Timberlake Trail.
Multiple officers responded, setting up a dragnet. Krahnie's human partner yelled into the woods, telling anyone within to speak up or surrender or the dog would be coming in. Almost on cue, Krahnie started barking, and that was enough to flush the suspect. A sergeant saw him on the run again, out of the woods and into tall grass near the W. Beltline Highway.
Krahnie did an obligatory sniff of the new area, and then started pulling hard towards a small cement culvert. Once there, Krahnie began barking vigorously. The K9's handler now knew inside that small pipe the suspect must be hiding. He began giving loud verbal warnings, telling the teen it was time to give it up.
Moments later feet could be seen poking out from the culvert.
