On October 6, 2010, Deputy Carter and his K-9, Chase, were dispatched to a reported Breaking and Entering in progress at 4800 Quail Hunt Cr. The victim advised that two black males had come to her front door and knocked on it several times and when she “did not answer it, they went to her back door and kicked it in.” The victim also advised communications that the suspects were coming up the stairs and she was hiding in the upstairs bathroom. As they were walking up the stairs Deputy Carter arrived and the suspects yelled, "The Cops."

Deputy Carter immediately got K-9 Chase out of the patrol vehicle and went to the back door where he observed the two suspects running from the house. Deputy Carter identified himself and told them to stop. The suspects kept running and K-9 Chase was released. Chase apprehended the first suspect and the second suspect immediately stopped and fell to the ground, asking Deputy Carter not to “turn the dog loose on him.”

Deputy Carter's quick response and assistance from K-9 Chase led to the apprehension of the two suspects. They are also suspects in six armed robberies and several Breaking and Entering cases. The victim and her husband were much appreciative and impressed with how the Sheriff's Office handled their very dangerous incident. Congratulations Deputy Carter!
