Deputy Micah Akin and his dynamic K-9 partner “Stark” reached their 100th capture.
On November 13, 2015, deputies responded to a disturbance with a gun call in an Aloha neighborhood. It was reported shots were fired following a verbal altercation and the three suspects fled on foot. After deputies cleared the exterior of the property, Deputy Akin and his K-9 partner Stark began to track the suspects. Stark tracked one suspect through a greenspace, an apartment complex and ultimately located the suspect in a field where he was attempting to hide. Stark barked and alerted his partner, Deputy Akin to the location of the suspect. This capture marked Stark’s 100th capture during his first three years on the job. The other two suspects were also caught and all three were charged with disorderly conduct, and one was charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon.
Deputy Akin and Stark are dually certified to support regular patrol operations through the Oregon Police Canine Association, and the Pacific Northwest Police Detection Dog Association.
