Newest Deputy Helps Track Down Suspect

The newest deputy from a local sheriff's office helped make an arrest on his first case.

That deputy is Brody, a K-9 with the Halifax County Sheriff's Office.

Brody and Deputy Jason Keeter were called to Highway 561 in the Hollister community about a possible breaking and entering. The victim told deputies he saw two men take off after stealing rims from his property.

Keeter took Brody to track the suspects, and officials say they found one of the suspects in the woods less than a mile from the scene of the crime.

Gregory Bowden, age 24 of Littleton, was taken into custody.

Lawmen also credit the victim for doing a great job getting a description of the suspects and their direction of travel, without trying to approach them and without putting himself in danger.

The search for the second robber continues.
